Founded by Victor Canard and Léonie Duchêne in 1868, Canard-Duchêne is the perfect marriage of a unique birthplace, history and style. While most leading Champagne Houses are located in the urban setting of Reims or Epernay, Canard-Duchêne is unusually situated in Ludes, on a hillside, at the very heart of the Montagne de Reims vineyards. Bordering the most prestigious terroirs, Ludes symbolises the magnificence of Pinot Noir grown in Champagne. This exceptional vineyard location gives Canard-Duchêne its unique character.
Canard-Duchêne and Pinot Noir share a fascinating history. The emblematic grape variety in Montagne de Reims is the backbone of the blend in Canard-Duchêne. It imparts depth, complexity, character and length, and guarantees the wines real ageing potential. For many years now, Canard-Duchêne has adhered to a strict policy of sustainable development and respect for the environment. A key focus of this approach is its Champagnes crafted entirely from organic grapes and the integrated landscape of Domaine de Ludes in Montagne de Reims, testament to the commitment of the Champagne region to be included on the Unesco World Heritage list.
