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.

Fairly youthful and fresh, with lively apple and floral notes alongside deeper, toastier aromas and flavors. Creamy in the mouth, and finishes with a hint of bitter grapefruit.

An elegant, floral style, full of verve and honey, biscuit and roasted flavors. It has that combination of freshness and maturity that creates tension between the elements, along with complexity and a fabulous finish. Drink now through 2005. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

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.

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.

The ripe sweetness of the 2000 vintage adds to the fleshiness of this wine, seeming superrich without weight. The flavors range from vanilla bean to Brazil nut and citrusy lime, all structured around limestone minerality. It's elegant and refined, the flavors lasting with complexity. Serve with a paillard of chicken in chanterelles and cream.

Here's proof of the great '96 vintage, an elegant brut balancing density and richness with brisk sophistication. Lemon and apple scents rise up out of the smoky lees, the fruit tight and austere against the richness of the texture. Delicious with cured fish, or with sushi, especially saba.
