Champagne
Canard-Duchêne Cuvée V 2010 – 1500ml

V like Victor Canard, who founded the Maison Canard-Duchêne in 1868. During the 2010 harvest, Laurent Fédou, cellar master of the House, was charmed by the quality and character of several plots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from an exceptional terroir. He envisioned a wine that would mark Canard-Duchêne’s 150th anniversary. He chose to release the 2010 vintage exclusively in magnum format as an extra brut style. V, an embodiment of the House’s history and Laurent Fédou’s savoir-faire, was born.

A word from our Cellar Master, Laurent Fédou

“The harvest began on September 13 for the earliest crus, the weather was dry and sunny. The terroirs of Ambonnay, Aÿ and Rilly reveal their delicacy and intensity, complemented by subtle Pinot from the Côte des Bar. The elegance and freshness of the Chouilly Chardonnay invigorate the Pinot.”
