Domaine Chandon Pinot Meunier Carneros 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator - 90 Points Offers good richness, density and complexity of flavors, which are layered and built around wild berry, huckleberry, fresh earth and floral scents. Full-bodied, ending with a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 20

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.

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.

Tasting Notes:

Pleasing bright cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors are balanced with a subtle earthiness and well-integrated oak.
