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 Australia is putting out some excellent fizz at present. There’s a sweetness to this blanc de blancs but it brings with it richness, the trade-off worth it. This makes a bold statement. It tastes barley sugar, blackcurrant bud, sweet breads, peach and citrus; the impression of super-freshness sits in complete harmony with its rich, developed core.
