History & Identity
Chandon Argentina was born of the visionary approach of Jean de Vogué, the Chairman of Moët & Chandon in the 1950s. Realizing that wine-growing regions other than Champagne were able to produce quality sparkling wines, he asked winemaker Renaud Poirier to travel the world in search of terroirs with the best potential. His journeys took him to Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, a renowned wine-growing region in western Argentina. After finding in Agrelo the perfect land for the first Moët & Chandon daughter company, Baron Bertrand de Ladoucette was appointed founding president of Chandon Argentina due to his vast experience, courageous and entrepreneurial spirit. This is how Chandon Argentina began its life in 1959.
Nowadays, Chandon Argentina produces wines that are internationally-renowned for their harmony: the chalky soils, wide thermal amplitude and semi-desert climate provide optimum conditions to make wines with remarkable concentration, vibrant acidity and balance.
