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.

 

The blend is 50% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier and 25% Chardonnay with reserve wine accounting for a significant proportion of the total (25%), particularly Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims vinified as a still red wine and used in the blend to add the lovely pink colour. Extended ageing in the cellar (3 years) adds depth and complexity.

 

Pretty pink in appearance with a very fine mousse. It is delicate on the nose with a very attractive creamy palate of ripe raspberries and cherries.  The fruit is balanced nicely with firm acidity and a good minerality in the long, dry finish. Great finesse and harmony.
