DOMAINE CHANDON – THE SECRET MUSEUM COLLECTIONDomaine Chandon is Australia’s foremost sparkling wine producer. During a conversation on the high costs of sparkling wine production, Chandon’s financial controller, Rob Peebles, let out that a number of wines from the best vintages had been set aside and deliberately “lost”. This smelt too much like a private cache of top wine set aside for Directors - the catch was how to get hold of it! We had a lucky break, Dr. Tony Jordan was in France and winemaker, Wayne Donaldson was recently promoted to run Chandon California. The person left in charge of this “museum” was a financial controller and Peebles’ only passion in life is money. (It’s so easy to deal with people when there are no emotions attached.) A deal was done - on the condition that we had to taste everything first and subject to quality we would proceed. Let us say, we have not been disappointed.
An extraordinary opportunity for a lucky few. Made from 100% Chardonnay. The wine spent 4 years on yeast lees prior to disgorging. Brilliant straw colour, very fine bead with good persistence. The nose shows excellent bottle developed character, whilst still maintaining a very youthful appearance. Aroma of hazelnut, flor fino and pronounced yeast autolysis. Creamy palate texture with still relatively high acid levels, due to the fact that it is 100% Chardonnay. Hints of grapefruit and citrus with very good length and persistence. Cellar 3-5 years. Very limited stocks
