Home-grown Chandon sparkles in 2020

Home-grown Chandon sparkles in 2020

Chandon, the ‘made in India’ sparkling wine from the Moët Hennessy portfolio, has had a sparkling 2020 by winning eight awards across categories. Chandon India won two awards each at the Decanter World Wine Awards and International Wine Challenge (IWC).

In addition, it was recognised with four prestigious awards at The Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships (CSWWC).

Chandon is the only Indian sparkling wine to have won awards in each of the nominated categories across platforms and to be bestowed as the National Champion for Best Indian Sparkling Wine 2020 for the Brut Rosé at The Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships.

The three are three of the world’s most prestigious wine competition and championships.

The award-winning sparkling wines, Chandon Brut and Chandon Brut Rosé, reveal complex flavours and intense aromas which are bound to excite the senses. Pale straw yellow to a golden hue with fine persistent bubbles, Chandon Brut is created with a combination of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Chandon Rosé is an elegant, fresh salmon pink colour with fine persistent bubbles. Made with Shiraz, it has intense aromas of ripe cherries with flavours of red fruits and soft grapefruit undertones that lead to an intense and creamy finish.

Launched in October 2013, Moët Hennessy India introduced Chandon Brut and Chandon Rosé handcrafted from grapes, home-grown in Nashik’s Dindori region. Chandon is the first offering from Moët Hennessy to be produced in India.
