Buy of the Week AU

Chandon Blanc de Blancs NV, Australia, AUD $25

The Chandon packaging has been revamped, with a striking strip label which links the neck and main labels. The wines are shy on detail about grape-growing regions but the quality is reliably high and good value.

The colour is a light yellow-green and the aroma is fresh and straightforward, fruit-driven and bright with herbal touches, while the taste is fruity and very attractive, not complex, but with a clean finish and good balance contributing to its spot-on ready-drinking qualities. It’s quite delicious and great value. (Diam)
