Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Like the Tasmanian Cuvee, has good mousse to its bright straw colour; more than 30 different base wines of Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier/ Chardonnay were blended before bottling using the Traditional Method, then spent over 2 years on lees; the fruit flavours have developed figgy, creamy characters balanced by citrussy acidity and modest dosage.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
Fresh and zesty, this opens with bright peach and nectarine stone fruits, lime and lemon citrus and subtle nutty complexity. The palate's lively with lemony acid crunch and mouth-filling concentrated fruit - a fine result that will develop further interest and complexity in bottle.

One of the best Vintage Bruts from Domaine Chandon for many years; delicious fruit flavours woven through touches of biscuit and brioche; lingering clean finish; perfect dosage

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Pale straw, with flicks of green; has ripe, but not heavy, stone fruit with a creamy texture and long finish, which is delicate and fresh; Pinot Noir/Chardonnay/Pinot Meunier; 30 base wines; 30 months; lees contact.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Fragrant aromas of fresh citrus and brioche lead into a gently nutty/creamy palate with citrus and melon fruit; perfect balance and length.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Bright, light straw-green; no hint of onion skin or pink; fine mousse; very crisp, fine and pure; a long and lively citrus/stone fruit palate and lingering finish. Best yet from Domaine Chandon.

Jeremy Oliver (2001 Vintage) says
Elegant, measured and creamy sparkling wine whose appealingly pungent and floral aromas of pristine cumquat, melon and raspberries are backed by dough-like and meaty cracked yeast influences. Long and smooth, it's vibrant but restrained, with lively fruit and bakery-like yeast qualities culminating in a soft, but crackly finish with lingering fruit flavour. Rather classy.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
A classic fine, but complex bouquet; fine, fresh and vigorous in the mouth, significantly more elegant than recent releases.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Light straw-green, infinitely more reassuring than some of the earlier vintages; a fragrant and fresh citrus blossom bouquet is followed by a delicate palate, which has good line, length and balance, finishing appropriately dry.

James Halliday (1995 Vintage) says
Distinct straw tinges, typical of Domaine Chandon Brut at the point of its first disgorgement. The bouquet is crisp, clean and youthful, with attractive mineral and apple aromas. The palate is citrus-tinged, with touches of cinnamon spice, and has an almost fairy-like delicacy. Great finish; one of the best young Bruts to so far come from Domaine Chandon.
