Nose has tangerine flesh, sweet green hay, moist chalk, warm pear and tangerine zest.

Palate has dried lemon, poached pear, day old brioche and under-ripe white peach. Medium-light level of acidity with a medium finish.

A solid bottle that appears to be gaining momentum as it warms in the glass.

We couldn't have picked a better champagne for Christmas breakfast. The Canard-Duchêne Charles VII Blanc de Blancs is an absolute stunner of a bubbles. We received this earlier in the year through our subscription with the Perth Champagne Club. It's definitely in my top 5!

On the eye it literally radiates with brightness. So vibrant and beautiful, definitely star like quality! The nose is full of toasty nectarine and peach with a citrusy effervescence that wakes up the nostrils. The palate is smooth, delicate and elegant. White peach, vanilla sprinkles and undeniable deliciousness seduce the palate. I need more of this sparkles stat!

PS: It's an amazing match for pork crackling and a BBQ brekkie too!!

Bombolla finíssima ,elegant i persistent.. Acidesa molt equilibrada i agradable. Sabor estructurat i persistent amb tocs de dolçor final. Molt bó.
