Champagne Canard-Duchene Cuvée Leonie Brut NV

Champagne, FranceThe founders of Canard-Duchene, Victor Canard and Léonie Duchêne, launched the house in 1868, though this is only year two seen here in Canada. The Brut Cuvée is a 50/30/20 mix of pinot noir, pinot meunier, and chardonnay with 25% reserve wine that spends 36 months on lees. The nose is fresh gingerbread, mineral, and lees, while the palate blends light tropical fruit with toast and salty oyster liqueur. At 9 g/L residual sugar, it is just on the edge of soft, and should appeal to those who want a more approachable style of champagne. Perfect for baked seafood dishes.Tasted: 01 November 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 54.99 BCLS QC 52.95 SAQ NB 56.99 NBLiquor Producer: Champagne Canard DucheneDistributors: Dandurand
