Description

Inspired by nature, Canard-Duchêne House is the first Grand House to produce an organic champagne since 2009.

The P181 cuvée originates from 9 hectares of meticulously cultivated vineyards certified in Organic Agriculture, including 7 hectares from the ZE 181 registered plot in Verneuil. The P181 Cuvee brings together freshness, complexity, and power. Its Extra-Brut dosage unveils the purity of the fruit and its full aromatic potential.

“The P181 Organic cuvee stands as a distinctive champagne, a true anthem to nature. Its origin lies in collaboration with numerous partners who, sharing our vision from the early 2000s, sought to commit to sustainability.” Laurent Fédou, Canard-Duchêne’s Cellar Master

Tasting Note

A bright pale gold hue. Yellow and white fruit aromas dominate on the nose before giving way to a very subtle smoky note and a hint of green almond. On the palate, its liveliness captivates with a lovely, invigorating freshness and an impression of summer fruit basket. The finish tightens, revealing delicate bitters.

Essi Avellan MW’s Champagne Report

Deep lemon colour. The clean, overt nose has tropical tones to the fruit, complemented by stylish toasty whiffs and lemony freshness. An organic Champagne blended from the grapes of seven villages, this is sweetly expressive on the plush palate and feels sweeter than its extra-brut dosage suggests. Rather vinous but perfectly fresh and inviting, it seems rather here-and-now in its wide-open character, so drink sooner rather than later. Drink: 2022-2025. 90 Points, August 2022

Glass of Bubbly Judges tasting note

“Pronounced aromas of buttered toast, cream, hazelnuts, lemon zest and cinnamon. Toasty flavours, with brioche, hazelnuts and apple. Beautifully balanced, a great wine.” Gold Pastries Delight
