An inviting floral bouquet is followed by rich, honeyed fruit flavors that harmonize with the velvety-soft texture. Luscious peach and white nectarine layered with honey and apricot persist throughout the long finish.
Chandon Riche pairs particularly well with rich and spicy foods and fruit based desserts. Domaine Chandon's Winemaker Wayne Donaldson explains that this sweeter style wine coats the palate and balances the heat of spicy foods, complementing dishes featuring chilies, cilantro, lemon grass, or green curry. This wine works equally well with rich foods like pate and foie gras, or desserts like fresh fruit tarts and tart tatin. For a refreshing apéritif, pour ice-cold Chandon Riche into a chilled flute.
No stranger to innovation, Chandon continues to explore the diversity of sparkling wine styles with the introduction of Riche, an extra-dry style. Chandon Riche is crafted to be a luscious, full-bodied wine capturing the ripe fruit essence of California's sun-drenched vineyards. The wine displays a whisper of sweetness yet it maintains our characteristic long, soft finish.
