In keeping with a style established more than thirty years ago, Chandon has captured the expression of Californa's vineyards in Brut Classic. Made using méthode traditionnelle, this wine goes through second fermentation in the bottle and is made from the traditional Champagne varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
Classic balance typifies this refreshingly soft, yet dry wine. Complex apple and pear characteristics are accented by citrus spice over notes of almond and caramel in the bouquet. When you taste Brut Classic, look for nutty flavors with hints of brioche that build to a refreshingly dry finish. Serve Chandon Brut Classic to refresh the palate when eating salty, creamy, or nutty foods such as Caesar salad, fried calamari, oysters, or fresh sashimi and sushi. (from the vintner)
