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.

    Round and fruity, like a good Mâcon Chardonnay. Shows apple and berry flavors in a soft yet balanced frame. Drink now. -BS Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Moet Chandon White Star NV 375ml

    Formerly known as "White Star," this slightly less-dry Cuv�ee is more delicate and fruity than most other Champagnes made in the classic Brut style.

    Crisp and lively, with aromas of green apple, cinnamon and vanilla that lead to appealing flavors of tropical fruit and spicy anise. Drink now through 2014.

    This medium-to-full-bodied sparkler has a mouthfeel that is at once gravelly and richly smooth - go figure. Granny Smith apples and granite-slate aromas play on the nose; on the palate, the same Granny Smith notes are swathed in dusty-earthy flavors. Though the back palate shows a little toast and cream, the wine's finish is more zippy, tangy citrus than oaky.

    Domaine Chandon blends Pinot Noir Chardonnay Pinot Blanc and Pinot Meunier to create a full rich and flavorful sparkling wine. Delicious with seafood smoked or creamy dishes.

    Chandon's basic brut is balanced and harmonious, with flavors of citrus, pear, raspberry and vanilla, and an engaging edge of dough and smoky oak. Basically dry, but with a sweetly ripe dosage that makes it round and creamy. Best of all, it avoids sharpness, and is smooth.

    Wine Tasting NotesThis wine offers the balance and elegance that has become Chandon's hallmark style. When you taste Brut Classic, look for nutty flavors with hints of brioche that build to a refreshing dry finish. The wine delivers complex apple and pear characteristics accented by citrus spice over notes of almond and caramel in the bouquet.

    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.
