Chandon's Pinot Meunier is fascinating little wine. Very attractive nose with a ton of fresh ripe red fruit and a slight herbal note. The palate is very similar with a medium amount of tannins, refreshing acidity and the same attractive red fruit flavors. It's a very easy to drink wine that I think would have wide appeal (it did with the people I served it to).

A really interesting wine. Firstly, how often do you see still varietal Pinot Meunier? Its very frequently used as part of the blend in sparkling wines (Champagne commonly), so its hardly a surprise seeing this made by a sparkling wine producer. Similar to an earthy pinot noir, this wine had flavors of cherries, with some sweet fruity notes and a core earthy undercurrent. Light tannins and a silky finish - again pinot noir -esque - in all it made for a new experience for me

Delightful sparkler at an excellent value. Delicate bubbles, nicely balanced. I buy it by the case when it's on sale and enjoy it year-round.

This is one of those classic "I dare you not to love this wine" offerings. Straightforward people pleaser, if this wine was a dog it would be a laberdoodle (loyal, with a French accent!). Bright, great acidity with dark cherry, allspice and slight earthiness. This is not the most complex wine in the world, but it's damn delicious.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Blanc de Noir (literally “white from black”) sparkling wines and the Chandon is a favorite for value. Produced from the noble black grapes of Champagne Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier this California bubbly is bursting with ripe strawberry pomegranate and white plum notes overlaid with lovely floral violet aromas. The tangy fruit flavors are lively on the tongue and the mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Although terrific on its own (for sipping or celebrations) I love to serve this with salmon canapés or omelets.

A good sparkling wine for the price. Medium-bodied it has pretty flavors of strawberries and limes. The bubbles are a little fierce in texture.

A lively quaff this is soft and loaded with fresh strawberry and creamy spicy vanilla notes. Drink now.

Full-bodied and dry. You can taste the Pinot Noir in the black and red cherry and red currant flavors. A bit rough in texture, but pretty good for the price. Will pair well with roast salmon or even a lamb chop.

Offers perfumed watermelon, ginger and anise aromas and straightforward strawberry, red apple and spicy yeast flavors. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot Meunier is the charming rustic cousin of Pinot Noir and plays a small but vital role in the blending of Chandon sparkling wines. Our vineyard property in Carneros seems to be the perfect home for this fruit, and once it has been romanced into a bottle, we believe its singular character deserves a place on every wine lover's table.
