Rich, decadent aromatics of acacia, honey and pineapple, the feel is rewarding, annexed to tropical notes of nectarine and mango. Refined and classy. Whereas Chandon Rosé is an elegant, fresh salmon pink colour with fine persistent bubbles. Made with Shiraz, it has intense whiffs of ripe cherries with flavors of red fruit undertones that leads to an intense and creamy finish.
