étoile Tête de Cuvée, 2008
French for star, étoile embodies the Chandon commitment to crafting the finest sparkling wine in America. étoile Tête de Cuvée, which literally means “head of the blend,” is the shining star of our portfolio. Aged on the yeast lees for at least seven years, it is a rare sparkling wine of unprecedented luxury and character.
Generous and broad aromas of caramel, dried fig, juniper berry and citrus mingle with hints of coco and vermouth on the nose. The palate is smooth and creamy with rich bread notes, ending with a lush dry finish.
