In 1868 our "Maison" was founded by Léonie and Victor Duchêne in Ludes, France, which is known as the heart of the Montagne de Reims.

Today we are still family owned with an annual brand production of 3 million champagne bottles. Canard-Duchêne offers 2 distinctive ranges of champagnes, a classic line (Brut, Rosé, Vintage, Demi-Sec) as well as the Grande Cuvée Charles VII range, our house signature. We launched in 2005 a new champagne, the Cuvée Léonie, which is a tribute to the founders of the house and exclusively distributed in the on-trade channel and in premium wine shops around the world.

Our export market today accounts for 40% of our business and Canard-Duchêne has been continuously growing its international development in the past few years. We are present in more than 30 countries and we are still looking for new partners in area as Eastern Europe (except Russia), USA, Spain, Asia (except Japan) and Australia.
