Chandon Blanc de Blancs 2012
Legendary champagne house Moët & Chandon established Domaine Chandon in 1986 to produce exceptional Australian sparkling wines from traditional grape varieties using the exact ‘méthode traditionnelle’ employed in Champagne, France. Excited by the capacity to produce wines of great elegance, finesse and individuality, Chandon’s winemakers began to make small quantities of still wines in the late 1990s, now the Domaine Chandon still wine range.
From vineyards in the Upper Yarra Valley and the Whitlands plateau vineyard purchased from Brown Brothers, the Upper Yarra grapes picked 24 Feb, the Whitlands grapes on 20 Mar astonishing. Made using the traditional method, disgorged in Jun '15 after 3 years on lees. Brilliant straw-green, it is a tour de force of investing a 100% chardonnay with multi-variety complexity.

Very good release of Chandon Blanc de Blancs. Cream to the texture, a bit of oomph to the flavour without going too far, and enough persistence to impress. This is a pretty spunky release from Chandon. Stonefruit, custard apples, lees, citrussy zing. Inherent creaminess does the wine wonders. Pastry elements. Impressive.
