Domaine Chandon Chardonnay Carneros 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

A distinguished, spirited and mischievous Champagne.

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.

every year i treat myself to one of these (and share with friends). delicious and refreshing, it's like waking up to a breakfast of fresh gingered toast and sparkling lemonade on a spring morning.

Good wine but not great. Light golden in color with traditional (but muted) yeast and dough aromas. Good acidity with sour green apple and dough flavors. Somewhat short finish.

With its high percentage of Champagne's third grape, Pinot Meunier, as a result of the growing conditions of 2003, this is a great wine that is developing fast. It has more toast, less fruit, although its richness and weight are finely in balance with a yeasty cookie dough character.

Shows lots of smoky, toasty oak up front, but also a pretty core of cherry and wild berry fruit. Well-balanced, with depth and complexity. Drink now through 2005.

An assertive, "winey" style Champagne, best for the dinner table. Has ample flavors, a robust, full-bodied texture and a lingering, tangy finish. Has developed nicely since last year.

A rich, opulent style, offering peach, apricot and ginger flavors. Full-bodied and muscular, yet with a firm structure keeping it all focused and a nice tangy finish. Drink now through 2018.

A bready, mushroomy bouquet announces this handsome, fairly mature vintage offering. Quite effervescent, it displays apple and toast flavors, herb and mineral accents. It's an elegant wine fairly low in acidity and not for long-term keeping, but perfect for drinking over the next two years.

While the aromatics are based on toastiness, the wine fills them out with a graceful firmness of texture. It tastes of toasted brioche, with a touch of candied lemon to heighten the flavor of buttery prawns sauteed with leeks.
