Canard-Duchêne joins Dourthe UK portfolio

05 May, 2009

Dourthe UK is to take on most of the off-trade distribution for Champagne Canard-Duchêne from June 1.

Champagne & Châteaux will continue to represent Canard-Duchêne in the on-trade and independent sectors.

Patrick Jestin, chief executive of CVBG Dourthe Kressmann, said: “We are excited about adding Canard-Duchêne to our UK list.

"This historic house has 140 years of proven credentials. It is one of the great independent Champagne houses in the appellation today and the fifth Champagne brand in the off-trade in France.”

Dourthe UK's portfolio includes Bordeaux châteaux and brands, Château de Sérame from the Languedoc and Clos de los Siete from Argentina.
