The Oddbins Take

The history of humanity is defined by great love affairs; Romeo & Juliet (okay it's fictional), Richard & Judy (they've been a mainstay of British telly for 78 years!) and the greatest romance of all; wine & barrels. That's what makes the story of Canard-Duchêne so beautiful; the marriage of Victor Canard a cooper and Léonie Duchêne a winemaker is like a pastiche of the relationship between oak and grape juice. Victor and Léonie may have long left this mortal plane but their love affair lives on through this expressive Champagne house that brings sparkling wine and oak together.


If this Champagne is anything to go by, the relationship is working. This organic Champagne is partially vinified in oak barrels and blended from 12 hectares of organically certified and cultivated vineyards, followed by bottle aging on the lees. The resultant wine has an elegant freshness with a rounded fruit character, balanced brilliantly with a biscuity backbone.


"When a wine loves a barrel, can't keep its mind on nothing else!"
