Chandon is proud of this shining star of its portfolio, étoile Tête de Cuvée. Similar to traditional Champagne houses, Chandon offers étoile Tête de Cuvée to represent the best of its wines — literally the “head blend.” To craft this sparkling wine, Chandon’s winemakers blended the best grapes from the 2003 harvest and allowed the wine to age gracefully for a minimum of seven years on the lees. This aging results in a wine with rich flavors, layers of complexity and a luxuriously creamy mouthfeel. étoile Tête de Cuvée is ready to enjoy upon release, but will continue to develop for years when suitably cellared. The attractive bottle is designed to reflect the elegance of the wine in the bottle, foretelling great expectations.
Honey, dried apricot and lightly toasted hazelnut aromas mingle with notes of citrus blossoms and lemon curd. On the palate there are distinctive honey and dried apricot flavors that broaden to reveal nectarine and candied ginger all wrapped in a texture that is defined by elegance and refined complexity.
