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.

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

The color is pale and brown. The nose is fragrant, yet sour. The initial taste is bold, but is also smooth (if you can imagine this). The follow through is bitter and weak - no legs. The mouth coat is strong and leaves a sour taste in the rear of the throat. I believe that the wine was stored standing upright in the store for WAY too long, but I can only rate what I taste.

Nice balance, there is some but not too much oak or butter.

Deep red and black fruit on the nose. Quite tannic for a pinot noir and take a while to open up. Once it does, however, it comes off as extremely well structured with a wonderful velvety feel in the mouth and a nice medium length finish.

Fruity and spicy. Medium-long finish. Would definitely buy again.

Very vegetative, herbal, and tea-like qualities on the nose, with a delicate and complex mouth. I wouldn't want to drink a lot of it, but for one glass it's very nice. Definitely a thinker instead of a doer.

Chandon Brut is the pinnacle of the Chandon stable and good enough to rival some of it's French cousins. Stone fruit flavours with green apple crunchy acidity and a complex yet subtle yeast character.

Chandon Brut 1500ml wine is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with a mid to straw yellow colour. Aromas of lifted spice and fig with honey and floral notes are evident on the nose. This wine is made using the classic Methode Traditionnelle including aging for 15 to 18 months on yeast before disgorging. Chandon NV has a mellow, biscuit aroma with floral and honeyed notes. The front and middle palate is round and creamy and the flavour is long with a lively, Brut finish.

Classic balance typifies this refreshingly soft, yet dry wine. The Chandon Brut wine delivers complex apple and pear characteristics accented by citrus spice over notes of almond and caramel in the bouquet. When you taste Brut Classic, look for nutty flavors with hints of brioche that build to a refreshingly dry finish.
