Winemaker's Notes:

United States | California | In Stock

Domaine Chandon:
Domaine Chandon is one of the most recommended wineries in the Napa Valley, and the only one with its own 4-star restaurant. The winery established its reputation with sparkling wines, and in 1989, the winery began crafting still wines from the classic Champagne varietals Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier.

Lightly yeasty and toasty scents meld with notes of hazelnut and dried orchard fruits on the nose. In the mouth this is a bit coarse with an intense core of fruity apple, nectarine and citrus fruits. The finish is pretty short but offers a hint of marzipan to help add some contrast. 86pts

This is a really nice inexpensive bottle. Notes of yeast on the nose and on entry, followed by crisp apple and sour dough. Overall, this bottle was very elegant for this price point.

    Love to have this in the house for impromptu celebrations, and I always love to visit when I am up in Napa.

    This is okay not as creamy complex as the french version but enjoyable everyday wine.

    The wine delivers complex apple and pear characteristics accented by citrus spice over notes of almond and caramel in the bouquet.

    Creamy, slightly toasty elements frame a fair measure of clearly defined fruit in the well-composed, fully champenized aromas. In the mouth, the wine is round and frothy with clean, slightly creamy, mildly cherry-like flavors that are at once direct, vital and easy to taste. Sporting fine yeastiness throughout, the wine is nonetheless bright, buoyant and fruity and finishes with just the right edge of crispness.

    Light, clean and correct, this one offers mildly citric qualities with hints of sweetness in its narrow, low intensity aromas. Frothy but firm and lean on entry, the wine is crisp, clean and fairly understated.

    A crisp, balanced bubbly that offers plenty of honeyed flavors of peaches, pineapples and smoky vanilla. the yeasty, doughy notes are just fine.

    Classic balance typifies this refreshingly soft, yet dry wine. The wine delivers complex apple and pear characteristics accented by citrus spice over notes of almond and caramel in the bouquet. When tasting Brut Classic, look for nutty flavors with hints of brioche that build to a refreshingly dry finish. - Winery

    Soft and creamy, with floral tropical fruit aromas and modest flavors. Drink now.

    Lots to like in this dryish to slightly sweet brut. It has polished lime, strawberry, vanilla and yeasty flavors. The all-important texture of the bubbles is a little rough and scoury.

    Tasting Notes:

    A complex sparkling wine created in a robust style that offers weight and dimension to the palate. With extended time on the yeast, this wine has a creamy texture, combining aromas of toasted hazelnuts with notes of black cherry, baked apple and ginger.
