About the Wine
This cracking white Sparkling wine produced by Chandon is made in Mendoza. Available in 75cl bottles, distributed in the UK by Moet Hennessy. Chandon Methode Traditionelle Brut is an inspired wine, made from Pinot Noir grapes. This cork closed wine is created with added sulphites. Like many wines in our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets. Excellent partner for light dishes based on white fish or chicken, green vegetables, salads and savoury cheese dishes.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.
- Green Apple
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
Blessed with outstanding natural diversity, as well as a real desire to put sustainability at the heart of their winemaking, Argentia remains a committed and naturally exciting wine producing country.Explore Argentina
