Champagne
Canard-Duchêne Léonie Brut NV

Dedicated to the founder of the house, the Léonie Brut is the champagne of connoisseurs. The use of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier in this cuvee combined with minimum ageing of 3 years creates excellent structure and richness.

“Léonie Cuvées are notable champagnes. Derived from an assemblage of exceptional grapes, they are aged to peak maturity thanks to the artful addition of reserve wines”
