With the summer in full swing across India, Chandon India has come up with a perfect wine to beat this sultry weather. It’s called DÃ©lice andÂ this new sparkler has been created at their winery in Dindori, Nashik.Â Made with locally-sourced Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay, DÃ©lice can be had chilled,Â on the rocks or with a slice of fruit, like orange.
From the time, Chandon India entered the Indian market, it has unveiled popular sparkling wines like Chandon Brut and Chandon Brut RosÃ©. Now, with DÃ©lice, Chandon hopes to offer its patrons, a sparkler that’s different from the Brut and the RosÃ© style. With a chicÂ bottle, DÃ©lice is bound to change the way of drinkingÂ because it’s best enjoyedÂ in a glass tumbler unlike other sparklers.
Speaking about the launch, StÃ©phane de Meurville â€“ Managing Director, MoÃ«t Hennessy India said, â€œAt Chandon India, our endeavour has been not only to gain share of heart, but also to introduce new consumers to the Chandon world. One way in which we will do this is by reaching out to consumers who currently shy away from the traditional Brut and Rose style of drinking.
DÃ©lice is our next step towards consolidating this vision. While the Indian market loves its bubbles, there is still a strong affinity for sweeter drinks and cocktails. DÃ©lice is the result of two years of extensive research and development by our team of winemakers led by Gustavo Agostini. We are very proud of this new product from the house of Chandon India which we believe will resonate with the Indian consumer.â€
Chandon DÃ©lice launched in Mumbai on May 11thÂ followed by New Delhi, Gurugram, Bangalore and Sri Lanka.
