  • “Cuvée Léonie” Brut N.V., Canard-Duchêne, 12% vol, 37.5cl

    “Cuvée Léonie” Brut N.V., Canard-Duchêne, 12% vol, 37.5cl

    CH24

    Named after Léonie Duchêne, one of the founders of the company, “Cuvée Léonie” is reserved for independent wine merchants and the world’s finest restaurants – we have listed it for several years and it has been our House Champagne since 2011.

     

    The blend is 50% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier and 25% Chardonnay with reserve wine accounting for a significant proportion of the total (25%). Extended ageing in the cellar (3 years) adds depth and complexity.

     

    “All the elements are there: the buttery brioche aromas with top floral notes, the depth of flavours and the finish. It’s the way that it’s all presented that sets it apart. ‘There’s a driving blast of fine mousse, a powerfully zesty mid-palate, and it all develops into a long dry finish”

  • Thiénot Brut N.V., 12.5% vol, 37.5cl

    Thiénot Brut N.V., 12.5% vol, 37.5cl

    CH20

    “Founded in 1985, Champagne Thiénot is the new kid on the champagne block and something of a trade secret. I came across the Brut NV the other day and was immediately smitten. A blend of 45% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier, it is light, delicate and fresh with hints of apple and quince – the perfect apéritif.”
    Jonathan Ray, The Field, April, 2011.
