The Oddbins Take

Our French is simple, however we feel that Canard-Duchêne generally interprets as "duck of oak". Furthermore, we trust this to be a reference to how this exquisite Champagne vanquished the UK.

The general population of Ludes, close Reims, kept a huge wooden Trojan-duck at traditions in Folkestone. The duck was filled to the overflow with Champagne bottles, and when neighborhood traditions officers wheeled it in, the trap entryway sprung open and jugs flew out, advancing up the M20 towards London. The rest is history.

In any case, our comprehension may not be truly genuine.

On a more genuine note, Canard-Duchêne was made as the consequence of the marriage of a barrel producer, Victor Canard, and a wine cultivator, Léonie Duchêne. In 2009, the house is still driven by a family devoted to making fine wines and champagnes. The Champagne house has been situated in Ludes in the Montagne de Reims National Park following 1868. Its authors were conceded the privilege by the Russian Imperial Family to embrace its crest as the family insignia.

The delegated two-headed hawk has in this way showed up on each Canard-Duchêne mark following the end of the nineteenth Century. The brand was an official supplier of the Tsar Nicolas the second.
