Try to recog­nise the aro­mas of fruits, flow­ers and spices. Sip the wine, let it linger in your mouth, and de­cide if it’s smooth or full-bod­ied, del­i­cate or com­plex.”

The wines have been crafted com­bin­ing the finest grapes with the cen­turies-old ‘method tra­di­tion­nelle’ to en­sure the sig­na­ture Chan­don style. The Chan­don Brut (`1,200) is straw yel­low and has a bright and fresh fruit bou­quet of cit­rus blos­som, green ap­ples with hints of vanilla. The Chan­don Brut Rosé (`1,400) has a vi­brant rose gold hue and smells of ripe cher­ries and pink grape­fruit with sub­tle hints of guava and rose petals.
