Described as deliciously soft, fresh and creamy, Chandon Vintage Brut 2016 is a blend of 50 percent Pinot Noir, 45 percent Chardonnay and 5.0 percent Meunier. The Chardonnay grapes highlight the lime and green apple aromas, while the Pinot Noir and Meunier grapes accentuate pomegranate and pink grapefruit. Thanks to a slightly younger yeast, the sparkling wine delivers spritely freshness and white flower aromas. On the palate, guests will enjoy lime and green apple notes, while hazelnut praline, biscuit and fresh dough add extra body. Chandon Vintage Brut is the first sparkling wine ever made at Chandon Australia since its foundation in 1986.
