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.
Vintage Brut is the heart and soul of Chandon. In 2015 the decision was made to make Vintage Brut wine exclusively from estate vineyards in Strathbogie, Whitlands and Coldstream. Having full control over all the fine details of vineyards, block by block, row by row, gives the precision and best expression of Australian sparkling wine grapes.
Yellow hues with flecks of green, very fine bead and persistent mousse. Aromas of grapefruit typical of Whitlands, blend with Mirabelle plum classic Strathbogie Pinot Noir flavour, overlaying praline and fresh toast characters derived from age and time on yeast lees. Citrus zest, pink grapefruit and white peach fruits with hazelnut and toast characters. The palate has very fine bubbles and long, tight acidity.
