No stranger to innovation, Chandon continues to explore the diversity of sparkling wine styles with the introduction of Riche, an extra-dry style. Chandon Riche is crafted to be a luscious, full-bodied wine capturing the ripe fruit essence of California’s sun-drenched vineyards. The wine displays a whisper of sweetness yet it maintains our characteristic long, soft finish.
An inviting floral bouquet is followed by rich, honeyed fruit flavors that harmonize with the velvety-soft texture. Luscious peach and white nectarine layered with honey and apricot persist throughout the long finish.
Food and Wine Pairing
Chandon Riche pairs particularly well with rich and spicy foods and fruit-based desserts. Winemaker Tom Tiburzi explains that this off-dry style coats the palate to balance the heat of spicy foods, complementing dishes featuring chilies, cilantro, lemongrass, or green curry. This wine works equally well with rich foods like paté and foie gras, or desserts like fresh fruit tarts. For a refreshing apértitif, pour ice-cold Chandon Extra Dry Riche into a chilled flute.
