Canard-Duchene Brut Classic NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinification The three grape varieties are selected for the Brut blend in proportions which may vary year to year: Pinot Noir (35 to 40%) for its strength and character, Pinot Meunier (35 to 40%) for its fruit and subtlety and Chardonnay (22 to 25%) for its finesse and elegance. Reserve wines, stored separately by cru, account for 20 to 25% of the blend Viewing Straw yellow colour, fine bubbles. Nose Intense fresh fruits aromas, characteristic of Pinot grapes. Tasting Fresh fruit flavours mingled with buttery toast notes, the sign of good maturity This champagne is delightful to drink at any time of the day and is particularly good as an aperitif. It is a fine accompaniment for white meat. Champagne should be drunk at temperature of 6° to 9°C.<br/><br/>

1860 in Ludes, Victor Canard, A cooper, and Léonie Duchêne, from a family of “vignerons” met and fell in love. They got married, and started to make their own champagne. Success came quickly, so they then decided to set up their own Champagne house. They joined their names together, in the true Champagne tradition, and Canard-Duchêne was born. The year was 1868. In 1890, their son, Edmond Canard took over. He was young, bold, loved champagne, and really understood the new world which was coming up. Under his guidance, Canard-Duchêne became international champagne, especially as one of the Champagnes supplied to the court of Tsar Nicholas II. Read less

I bought two half bottles of this from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/11346 for £18.Champagne is France's most northely wine appellation from the Department of that name some 90 miles north-east of Paris.It is a sparkling wine made by the addition of yeast and sugar to bring about a secondary fermentation in the bottle.My bottles come from the small negociant house of Canard Duchene and consist of 45% pinot noir,35% pinot meunier and 20% chardonnay.I served the first bottle today at a salmon and salad lunch with a guest. It is a bone dry wine with lots of fine bubbles and some sour apple style fruit. It was a good accompaniment to the lunch
