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
Creamy, slightly toasty elements frame a fair measure of clearly defined fruit in the well-composed, fully champenized aromas. In the mouth, the wine is round and frothy with clean, slightly creamy, mildly cherry-like flavors that are at once direct, vital and easy to taste. Sporting fine yeastiness throughout, the wine is nonetheless bright, buoyant and fruity and finishes with just the right edge of crispness.
"The Chandon Etoile Rose wines aromas are rich and complex - floral notes with Santa Rosa plum
A rich, intense style, with a light pink color and raspberry, tar and yeast aromas followed by full-bodied strawberry, loam and spice flavors. Drink now through 2013.
Rich and full-bodied, offering cherry and spicy vanilla aromas, with layered flavors of baked apple, cinnamon and toasted almond. Drink now.
Crisp yet full-bodied, with spicy and floral watermelon aromas and racy, mature flavors of citrus, guava and fresh ginger. Drink now through 2015.
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.
One of the most underrated bubblies today; high-class juice; the fruit is there, the bubbles are small, the bubbly is elegant.
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.
