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.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
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 a really dry sparkler with yeasty, tart sour apple notes. I personally really enjoyed this wine.
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 my wifes go to sparkler. It has a good balance of yeast / toast and acidity.

A classy wine, with distinct Pinot Noir character built around ripe cherry and blackberry fruit, with hints of roasted grain and dough, turning rich and complex while maintaining a sense of elegance and finesse. Drink now through 2008. 2,000 cases made. -JL

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.
