Canard-Duchêne: the champagne that hides a forest

Canard Duchene

Tasting a nice bottle of champ ' which is actively involved in reforestation and contributes directly to biodiversity. Deal!

A committed house

We no longer need to introduce Canard-Duchêne , the beloved house of stars and Romanovs born in 1868, resulting from a mythical love story between Victor, son of a cooper and Léonie, the daughter of a winegrower.

What is less known is that they stand out as pioneers in responsible production and respect for the vineyards. “ Today our commitment is sincere, progressive and imperfect. Like the whole sector, we are in action ”, explains Laurent Fédou , cellar master who since 2003 has initiated a manufacturing process that respects the global environment.

The Reforest'Action cause

New project to increase its sustainable development approach against global warming : a very active collaboration alongside the Reforest'Action organization which strengthens biodiversity through the restoration and creation of forests all over the world, and particularly in the Domaine de Ludes , nestled on the slopes of the Montagne de Reims, between vineyards and forests.

24,700 trees have already been planted by Champagne Canard-Duchêne in various species (sessile oaks, cherry trees, razor pear trees, etc.) on 18 hectares of abandoned forest located near Epernay. The benefits of this action are directly measurable and displayed: 3,705 tons of CO2 stored, 74,100 shelters for animals created, 98,800 months of oxygen generated and 24,700 hours of work created ”, estimates Laurent Fédou.

A green and stylish cuvée in a limited edition

To translate its commitment to this project, the champagne house has incubated a limited edition Cuvée Reforest'Action which has everything to please green consciences and lovers of well-frozen champagne.

Not only does this Brut Réserve bottle contain a sharp wine at a fair price, with extraordinary freshness, toasted notes and an exquisite mirabelle plum aroma, ideal for celebrating spring.

But this bottle also invites you to live a brilliant experience with the QR Code affixed to the label which triggers a “ bird ” soundtrack, guaranteed 100% Domaine de Ludes. In short: the highly stylish playlist for your next aperitif.

Indicative sale price 20 €. On sale and at Monoprix.
