Love this bottle, a killer value, can be found in a retail setting for under $30. Please see my prior notes.

The palate on this bottle is a little more chalky (limestone) than I remember, this is a good thing! Last time we had this wine it was in the winery cellar in Ludes. I miss and don't miss those stairs into their very deep cellar.

I really can't wait to go back to France, we loved Burgundy, but the Champagne region is equally full of amazing producers, big and small.

50% Chardonnay / 40% Pinot Meunier / 10% Pinot Noir

On the nose, light citrus and green apple, white flowers with honey.

On the palate, toasty brioche with refreshing acidity and pear/melon notes.

This bottle delivers a stunning value; we normally can buy this at $30, and be oh so happy!

Producer Note:
Canard-Duchêne is unique in its origins, history and style. The Champagne house has been located in Ludes, in the Montagne de Reims National Park, since 1868, and is one of the original Grandes Marques. Its founders, Victor Canard and Leonie Duchêne, both well-known characters in Champagne, were granted the right by the Russian Imperial Family to adopt its coat of arms as the family emblem. The crowned two-headed eagle has thus appeared on every Canard-Duchêne label since the end of the 19th century. These authentic, original Champagnes combine fruit, intensity and complexity.

Severely underrated! I love this champagne! It is crisp and elegant. It hits the palate with such brevity and clarity. I'm so glad I was able to stumble upon this fantastic find!

Stately Champagne with delicious lemon curd and brioche notes, followed by kumquat and mineral, and a light dusting of toasted hazelnuts

Heerlijk rond, milde frisse tonen met veel kleine bubbel. Zuren op de achtergrond en vooral fruitig en lang.

A little more oxidative in style--secondary and tertiary characteristics.

Mediocre. Drinkable but not exciting
