CHANDON S

A THROWBACK TO 1940'S CASABLANCA AND THE INVENTION OF THE MODERN CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL  


Chandon S is inspired by the classic Champagne cocktail ordered by Victor Lazlo in the iconic 1942 film, ‘Casablanca’.

INTRODUCING CHANDON S

Chandon S is an infusion of sparkling wine and bitters. A throwback to 1940’s Casablanca and the invention of the modern Champagne cocktail.

Combining a base of Chandon Brut and handmade orange bitters crafted by the Chandon winemakers, this new drop on the block is a refreshing and thoughtful alternative to bubbles for parties and knock-off drinks.

CHANDON SIGNATURE BITTERS

Originally concocted as a medical treatment, bitters are used to flavour some of our favourite tipples, from the Old Fashioned to the Manhattan.

It’s basically an alcoholic preparation flavoured by some sort of botanical matter, whether that’s fruit, herbs, bark, roots or a combination. The flavour profile is generally bitter, sour or bittersweet.

BENDING THE 'SPARKLING' RULES 


Blending signature Chandon Sparkling and a bespoke handcrafted recipe for bitters, Chandon S sings with zesty orange and subtle spice. Orange peel brings aromatic citrus notes, while fresh ginger and dried spice infusions add an exotic element. Gentian root extract delivers a delicate bitterness to the palate. 

Méthode Traditionelle

A BLEND OF TRADITIONAL AND INNOVATION


All the signature elements of Chandon have been maintained. - Vibrant Chardonnay, spicy Pinot Noir, fermentation and bottle age to establish the gentle beads and mousse. After that point, the rules are broken with an innovative approach to dosing bottle aged wine with the handcrafted Orange Bitters.

PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES

In crafting this drink the Chandon team went a drop further than just adding a pre-made bitters concoction.

They charged their winemaking team with concocting a custom recipe that would complement Chandon Brut and achieve the desired aromatic outcome.

The outcome is dominated by orange (they burned through 300 kilograms of oranges in their search) but the brandy spirit is also infused with five other key ingredients: Gentian root, fresh ginger, vanilla pods, cinnamon quills and green cardamom pods.

ONE EYE FIRMLY FIXED ON THE FUTURE 

Chandon has always been a brand with one eye fixed firmly on the future.

In the 1970s, they were the first French house to look at New World opportunities to create bold and exciting sparkling wines. The same rings true now, almost fifty years later.
