The 2017 Chandon Blanc De Blancs is a pale straw colour with green hues, with very fine bubbles and persistent mousse. The nose is vibrant with lemon zest, grapefruit, apple blossom and charming minerality. On the palate, it is crisp and lively, with flavours of citrus and layers of hazlenut crumble and biscuit, sure to further develop in the coming months and years.

Winery & Vintage Info

The Chandon Estate Grown Blanc de Blancs comes from their three great sparkling vineyard locations, Whitlands Plateau, Strathbogie Ranges and the Yarra Valley.

As one of the coldest vineyards sites in Australia, the Whitlands Plateau benefits from high altitude and cool air drainage from the plateau itself. The lofty exposure is complemented by red basalt ferrosol which are special soils that frequently produce wines of great personality and enduring age ability.

The Strathbogie vineyards sits at just over 600m elevation and has striking granite geological features, producing chardonnay grapes with profound flavour and minerality, for warmer Yarra Valley vineyards add stone fruit characters and softness.

The beautiful vineyard resources we have at high altitudes, the finesse and elegance of pure Chardonnay cuvées, and the complexity drawn from méthode traditionnelle are all on show in this exclusive release.

Chardonnay grapes were picked between late February and mid-March. Several parcels of each block (and clone) were pressed and fermented separately to ensure the unique characteristics of each batch and diversity of fruit were retained. A very small proportion was fermented in small, seasoned oak barrels to give further complexity. Each cuvée was then selected for its flavours, balanced structure and palate length. All essential for any Chandon vintage style. Following tirage and secondary fermentation, Chandon Vintage Blanc de Blancs 2017 spent more than 42 months ageing on yeast, an essential part of the méthode traditionnelle process.
