Moët & Chandon to launch Indian bubbles

Champagne house Moët & Chandon has launched two Indian sparkling wines, Chandon Brut and Chandon Brut Rosé. They are made in Dindori which is located in Nashik, one of India’s most promising wine growing regions. Nashik is located about three hours’ drive from Mumbai. Here we also find the well-known Sula Vineyards along with 40 other wine estates. The first grapes here were sauvignon blanc and chenin blanc and they were planted in 1990.

Chandon’s two sparkling wines are made using the traditional method, which is a secondary fermentation in the bottle. Chandon Brut is a blend of chenin blanc, chardonnay and pinot noir. The rosé has shiraz as the dominant grape. It is mixed with a little pinot noir. These wines are made primarily for the Indian market.
