As a prestigious cuvée, this vintage without any dosage is a blend dominated by the powerful and subtle character of Pinot Noir.


75% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

The Canard-Duchêne House only creates a vintage from the best harvests. 2012 was a year rocked by abundant rainfall and intense sunshine, resulting in a high-quality harvest. The ten years of ageing in the cellars have perfected the maturity and complexity of this exceptional champagne.

Terroir: There are 19 Crus, most of which are Grands Crus and Premiers Crus, such as Aÿ, Bouzy, Chigny, Ludes, Taissy, and Mailly.

40% of Grands Crus – 20% of Premiers Crus

The terroir of the Montagne de Reims is mainly chalky, giving the Champagne all its minerality, body and finesse.

The terroir of the Vallée de la Marne is much richer (marlier and more clayey), balancing the Champagne by adding its richness.

Vinification : Dosage : Brut Nature – Zero dosage

Thermo-regulated stainless-steel tank. Malolactic fermentation

Ageing in cellars: 10 years

Tasting Note

A pale gold hue, limpid, sublimates a delicate bubble. At the first nose, a few brioche notes, slightly toasted, as well as aromas of ripe yellow fruits such as mirabelle plums, unfold. When aired, elegant raspberry aromas unfold. As the wine evolves, it reveals slight hints of cedar wood. Beautiful structure and freshness; minerality and saltiness in the mouth. Slight notes of grapefruit zest are delicately expressed on a long and persistent finish.

Ageing potential: 10 years

Essi Avellan MW’s Champagne Report

In 2012, chef de cave Laurent Fédou came up with an unusual blanc de noirs blend for this cuvée, celebrating the quality of the year’s dark-skinned grapes. It has an intense lemon colour and an evolving nose in which toasty and yeasty notions add complexity to the orchard-fruit profile. There is also a touch of oxidation that takes away from the purity. A really nice acid line brings welcome lightness to the concentrated whole. Structure-wise, this can age, but oxidation might creep in quickly. A big and bold style, with 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Meunier. Drink: 2022-2026. 90 Points, August 2022

Food Pairing

Royal crab and grapefruit millefeuille accompanied by a raspberry vinaigrette and grilled brioche.

Tuna tartare maki with red tuna, cucumber, Boston lettuce, and flying fish roe.

Cheeses: Brillat-Savarin, Brie de Melun, Lochois sheep cheese, Mont Vully, or Persillé de Tignes.
