Chandon India named best Indian bubbly in World Championships

Chandon India NV Brut has been honoured as the Best Indian Sparkling Wine among the National Champions in the Champagne & Sparkling Wine, World Championships. Now in its sixth year, CSWWC is the most professional and rigorous competition for all serious, quality conscious producers of champagne and sparkling wine.

The wines are tasted blind by a panel of three highly experienced, specialist judges. This is the very first time that India has won a trophy. In its search for new winemaking territories, Moët Hennessy decided that the Nashik region had the potential to produce world-class, premium quality sparkling wine. Chandon is their first wine in India, now available across 22 cities.

“The Indian Brut Non-Vintage has a sprightly lemon colour, with soft, white-fruit aromas and yeast- complexed notes leading to a fresh and fruity, nicely structured palate that is neatly underscored by a fine line of acidity. This cuvée shows a significant step up from previous blends,” writes Tom Stevenson.
