Domaine Chandon Chardonnay Carneros NV
étoile Rosé sparkles with a brilliant salmon color, bold yet refined berry flavors and excellent richness and length. A small amount of Pinot Noir is added prior to tirage, or secondary fermentation, to create its deliciously distinctive color. The wine is aged for a minimum of five year sur lees to add complexity and sophistication. Fruit sourcing is from our most prized vineyards in Napa and Sonoma.
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.
Editorial Reviews for Domaine Chandon Chardonnay Carneros
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 my wifes go to sparkler. It has a good balance of yeast / toast and acidity.
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.
This is a really dry sparkler with yeasty, tart sour apple notes. I personally really enjoyed this wine.

External Reviews for Domaine Chandon Chardonnay Carneros
Very pale straw with a metallic cast. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Apples, quince, bread. Hints of toasty yeast on the nose. Delicious fruity attractive palate makes for an easy drinking style. Generous and rounded without being a heavyweight.
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.
Impérial, the best-selling Champagne brand in the world, is now the nonvintage Moët brand in the United States, replacing White Star. However, the American blend is sweeter than Impérial elsewhere, and similar to White Star, emphasizing fruitiness, ripe pear and creamy apple flavors and a soft, easy finish.
A nice, everyday bubbly that offers elegance at an affordable price. Chardonnay contributes crisp flavors of limes, while Pinot Noir brings deeper flavors of cherries. A lovely wine that grows in the glass.
Crisp and lively, with apple and spicy anise aromas and citrus, kiwifruit and vanilla flavors. Drink now.
A crisp, balanced bubbly that offers plenty of honeyed flavors of peaches, pineapples and smoky vanilla. the yeasty, doughy notes are just fine.
Food Pairings for Domaine Chandon Chardonnay Carneros
In keeping with the traditional ros_ winemaking method, we add a small amount of red wine (Pinot Noir) prior to tirage to create the distinctive salmon color with copper hues. The wine is elegant and restrained with fresh aromas of plum, raspberry and nutmeg. These aromas follow through on the palate and are layered with subtle and delicate flavors of cocoa powder. The wine finishes with excellent length and richness that will stand up to a variety of foods.
