Field to Glass Wine Dinner Series 2019~Left Bank Larkspur

Come Join the Cru and Let’s Get Corked!

Join us in 2019 as we have gathered a select group of dedicated winemakers and wine professionals from all around the world and invited them to share their stories with us.

We seek out family owned wineries whose wines have been featured on our wine list. We look for people who share some of the same philosophies that are important to us at Left Bank Brasserie Larkspur; good stewards of the land, those with sustainable business practices, and of course, good wines.

Each month we are hosting a 4 course wine dinner with sparkling wine reception, to savor these delicious wines as they were meant to be, with good friends and delicious food!

Canard-Duchêne

$150 per person

A Legacy of Passion

Canard-Duchêne’s passion stems from a unique blend of family values and an identity deeply rooted in the Champagne region. It all started with the love of Victor Canard and Léonie Duchêne. In 1868, they created the eponymous Maison Canard-Duchêne, driven by a bold vision: to reveal the exceptional potential of their hillside village, located in the heart of the Montagne de Reims.

The Canard-Duchêne domain is in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, surrounded by celebrated vineyards and stunning landscapes. Ludes boasts an exceptional location. Perched atop the famed Montagne de Reims plateau, the village is nestled amongst lush forests and delicate hillside vines. A true piece of Canard-Duchêne’s oenological heritage, Pinot Noir draws its character from the nutrient-rich soil of the Montagne de Reims, the product of 70 million years of evolution and unique combination of limestone, chalk, clay and sands.

Canard-Duchêne’s unique identity stems from the character and elegance of Pinot Noir: it brings structure to the wine, enhancing fruity notes of cherry, sour cherry, blackberry, redcurrant, strawberry, and raspberry. Despite its intense purple skin, Pinot Noir produces a clear must, creating a clear juice from the freshly pressed grapes containing seeds, skins, and solid matter.

Cellar master Laurent Fédou is driven by instinct and curiosity. He uses those characteristics as his inspiration for rethinking the art of champagne making without neglecting tradition. For the last 15 years, Fédou has brought a sense of joy and creativity to the Maison Canard-Duchêne
