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.
Fruit from the Strathbogie Ranges and King Valley. Not shown on the new, bold labels that the wine was disgorged in June ’21, the only label claim is traditional method. The fine mousse is very active in the mouth, and the dosage has been kept to a low level ex the long time the wine was on tirage.
