Tasting Notes

When to drink
Drink now or cellar for 5+ years
On the nose
On the nose it tantalises with aromas of Asian pear, white peach and finger lime with an undercurrent of macadamia butter and hints of apple blossom.
On the palate
The palate reveals waves of yuzu, bergamot and white peach floating on pistachio nougat with whispers of pastry and allspice. Characters burst with radiance integrate seamlessly. There’s tightly wound acidity and a surprising level of brightness and vibrancy. Autolytic notes from the wine’s extended age are smooth and subtle, gingernutty.
Product Notes
Every year – with the exception of 2000 and 2020 – CHANDON has released a Vintage Brut, our flagship wine. And every year we have put aside reserves of these blends for future use. Étoile is a true multi-vintage blend of eight exceptional years of CHANDON Vintage Brut, spanning back to 2005. Ageing in oak barrels adds further complexity.
