In the 1950s, Robert Jean de Vogüe, president of Moët et Chandon, wanted to produce a top-of-the-range sparkling wines abroad under the CHANDON brand.
From 1959 onwards, the CHANDON vineyards expanded across borders (Argentina, California, Brazil, Australia, China, India), working with winemakers who were eager to produce fresh, elegant sparkling wines with a unique character.
The Chandon Garden Spritz is an innovation created by the oenologists and winemakers of the CHANDON vineyard located in Mendoza, Argentina. The Chandon Garden Spritz is the result of a Chandon Brut blend, made from a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Semillon from vineyards located at an altitude of approximately 1,000 metres and used here as the base wine, with a unique combination of macerated herbs, spices and Valencia orange peel.
It took four years of research and 64 tries to define the process of elaboration of this unique maceration, each element of which confers specific notes and aromas: spices bring woody notes, herbs and plants aromatic notes and finally bitter notes from the orange peel. There are no artificial colouring, aromatics and flavourings used in the production of the Chandon Garden Spritz.
Aromatic, vibrant, bitter. Zesty yet rich orange flavours from dried and fresh peels combine with a blend of herbs and spices for the perfect balance of bitter and sweet.
