Canard-Duchêne Cuvée Léonie Rosé NV – New packaging

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. Its founders, Victor Canard and Léonie 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. Combining fruit character, intensity and freshness, Canard-Duchêne Champagnes offer the perfect balance of originality and authenticity.

Cuvée Léonie Rosé expresses a seductive, feminine style, defined by elegance, full flavour and harmony.

“ Cuvée Léonie Champagnes are truly exceptional. Crafted with only the noblest grapes, they owe their distinctive character to optimum ageing and a significant proportion of reserve wines in the blend.” Laurent Fédou, Canard-Duchêne Cellar Master
