"Chef Ducasse is a self-declared Champagne lover and has a private-label Champagne bottled just for his restaurants. The Ducasse Champagne, a medium-bodied, fairly rich wine, is made by the Champagne house Lanson Champagne, because they are "very consistent," according to Chef Ducasse." - Wall Street Journal

This is the magnum size equivalent to two regular bottles, perfect when you want to make an impression.

To the eye, It has a brilliant, clear color with amber highlights and a joyful stream of fine bubbles. In the glass, it is lively with a fine string of bubbles.

To the nose, the impression is one of vitality and scents of spring mixed with a touch of "toast" and honey. On the palate, bouquets of ripe fruit and citrus fruit create a sensation of fullness, fruitiness and lightness. A pleasant racy wine with a long and lingering taste.

The Michelin Starred Chef's Champagne

It’s easy to understand why 21-time Michelin starred Chef, Alain Ducasse, is a self-described Champagne lover. Once reserved only for special occasions, Champagne is now recognized by the world’s great chefs and home cooks alike as the ultimate partner with food. Looking to create a private label to serve exclusively at his restaurants, Chef Ducasse teamed up with Champagne Lanson to create this house pour. Known for their crisp, fresh and clean style, Champagne Lanson conceived the blend to shine bright alongside Chef Ducasse’s creative and contemporary cuisine. Medium in body and lively, it has bountiful notes of green apple, hints of orchard peach, honey and just a touch of toastiness. Fine bubbles glide across the palate and mingle with delicate fruit until a streak of acidity rounds out the finish. To have access to a bottling normally reserved for the restaurant list is a rarity, but to find it in magnum format is an extraordinary offer not to be missed. With magnums you get double the Champagne, that stays fresh longer and has extended ageing potential. A magnum of Champagne always makes for an ooh-ahh moment, and at this price you can have many!
