Chandon Sparkling Wine: French Heritage Meets New World Innovation

Summer in the Philippines is fast approaching and what better way to cool off then with a glass of bubbly. Although sparkling wines like the Champagne from Moet & Chandon or Veuve Clicquot are often saved for special occasions, there’s a new option that is breaking stereotypes: Chandon. 

From the same house of Moet & Chandon, Chandon offers a modern sparkling wine. One that despite being part of the renowned house of LVMH, is much more down to earth. Chandon doesn’t have to wait for “special” occasions to be opened and enjoyed. Instead, it’s there to help you celebrate life’s everyday moments - something we’ve all grown to appreciate more in the last year. 

They’ve accomplished this by maintaining their French heritage but adapting to new world innovations to bring you this affordable luxury. So sit back and relax as we introduce you to your new everyday drinking sparkling wine.

When Old World Meets New World 

Chandon came to life when Robert Jean de Vogue, the Director of Moet & Chandon, realized that wine growing regions other than Champagne could produce high-quality wines. Together with winemaker Renaud Poirier, they came across Mendoza, Argentina. Already a renowned wine-growing region in the country, Mendoza has a terroir perfect for producing wines with great structure and balance. Thus in 1959, Chandon Argentina opened up as the first Moet & Chandon daughter company to establish itself overseas. Armed with 270 years of French heritage combined with new world innovations, Chandon started producing fantastically balanced wines. 

Today Chandon has locations worldwide: Australia, California, China, Argentina, Brazil, and India. This has made them known as the only label in the world where the sun never sets. This is what allows them to offer high-quality sparkling wines at more cost-friendly prices. In fact, some of you in the Philippines may be wondering why you’ve heard of Chandon before, and that’s because you probably have. 

Chandon used to be available in the Philippines, but under Domaine Chandon Australia. Due to production costs, bottles were priced at a higher tier and were less attractive to a still emerging community of Filipino wine drinkers. However, now that Chandon is being brought in under Chandon Argentina - where there are higher production yields - you can find Chandon under ₱1000.

Elevate Your Everyday with Chandon

In a country where we like to celebrate small and big milestones alike, whether it’s a big anniversary or it’s simply getting through your first presentation at work, Chandon is the perfect pairing. 

Chandon Brut

The classic take on sparkling wine, Chandon Brut takes on all of the traditions of Champagne. Pop open a bottle and enjoy fresh and crisp flavors of peach, apple, and citrus with a touch of creaminess. You can serve this alone as an aperitif or with dishes like caesar salad, calamari, or sashimi. 

Chandon Rosé

A beautiful pale pink color, Chandon Rosé is silky and balances perfectly between fruity and floral. When you take a sip of this you’ll find flavors of fresh strawberries, watermelon, and cherry that linger on the palate. Add a touch of magic to your summer drinking with this Rosé wine at your next outdoor picnic or weekend brunch. You can drink it alone or with shellfish paella or a grilled salmon. 

Chandon Délice

Fun and unpretentious, Chandon Délice is a semi-sweet yet refreshing wine with notes of tropical and citrus fruits like apple and nectarine. We think this is best served over ice over ice with a garnish of your choice such as basil, ginger, or cucumber or even as a sweet addition to your favorite sangria recipe. If you like Moscato d’Asti then this is definitely one to try. 

Whether you’re after a classic sparkling wine, something pink and fruity, or a refreshing option over ice, there’s a bottle of Chandon Sparkling Wine for you. Open a bottle, pour yourself a glass, and enjoy the little things in life.

When it comes to pairing wine with food, one plus one doesn’t always equal two.

Whilst wine can enhance flavors of your meal, it can also destroy them. So with that being said, here is a cheat sheet guide to successfully pairing wine with food.
