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.
Chandon Vintage Brut is in fine form. This hits quality right on the buzzer. Lemon pie, stone fruit, baked apples, fennel and spice, a yeasty-creaminess adding yet more texture and interest. It dazzles mostly with its freshness but there’s substance to back it up. Very good fizz.
