Very good release of Chandon Blanc de Blancs.
Cream to the texture, a bit of oomph to the flavour without going too far, and enough persistence to impress. This is a pretty spunky release from Chandon. Stonefruit, custard apples, lees, citrussy zing. Inherent creaminess does the wine wonders. Pastry elements. Impressive. Rating 93 - Drink by 2019, Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au (SEP/2015).
Winery Tasting Notes
Delicate and refined aromatics of green apple, honeysuckle, kaffir lime leaf and lemongrass overlay nougat and fresh crème anglaise characters.
The palate echoes the same orchard fruits and florals of the nose, with yeast elements in the background. Zesty, long, fine mineral acidity is balanced with subtle bottle age characters and a creamy palate texture.
Best with sea urchin; Port Phillip Bay mussels with creamy tarragon sauce; Scallops with Thai basil.
