Wine of the Week AU
Chandon Vintage Brut Pinot Noir Chardonnay Pinot Meunier 2013, Victoria, AUD $41
A beautifully composed wine with refined layers and gentle complexity. Savoury top notes introduce an elegant palate that has a fine and creamy bead. There is commendable harmony, and subtlety, to this wine and the low dosage of 6g/L is spot on.
An interesting, satisfying and immensely pleasurable sparkling wine, made from grapes sourced from the Yarra Valley, Strathbogie Ranges and the Whitlands Plateau of the King Valley. (Cork)
