Chandon Sweet Star
Vibrant and fun, Sweet Star offers a slightly sweet profile that is balanced by a refreshing acidity. Robust with bright tropical, grapefruit and floral notes, try as a spritz over ice, alongside spicy fare and even with desserts.
Sourced from high-quality, cool climate Northern California appellations, with harvest taking place at night to capture Chandon’s signature freshness and brightness.
After gentle pressing, primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel, followed by 75% malolactic fermentation. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle via the Methode Traditionelle.
Exotic and generous, Sweet Star is juicy on the nose and silky on the palate – honey, stone fruit, nectarine, mango, and orange contribute to the perfect balance of sweetness, fruitiness, and structure, with a refreshingly bright finish.
Spicy dishes, decadent desserts or brunch are a match, try pad Thai, yellow curry, chicken and waffles, or lemon meringue pie. Also try Sweet Star over ice with a garnish of your choice!
Blend: 67% Chhardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir
