Very fresh and complex on the nose with complex notes of dried citrus zest, chalk, smoke, mineral and slightly balsamic tones. In the mouth this medium weight wine shows a certain sense of restraint but offers up layers of dried orchard fruits and exotic spice top notes, with toast and toasted nut accents. With good length on the finish and nice persistence to the fruit flavors. 90pts

This had a very delicate nose, but was something that I liked very much. I did catch a bit of honey on the nose, and the spritz added a freshness to it. On the palette, this is much darker than a champagne. It has a creamy mouthfeel, but notes of dark fruits. It is a very enjoyable wine to drink, but for me, the carbonation is just too much. I think that is entirely just a personal preference, and it probably has just the right amount of carbonation for what it is supposed to be.

Very refreshing, light champagne. Not overly sweet.

I loved this when when I tasted it at the vineyard in Napa. It has a lovely cream and hazlenut flavor - much smoother than other sparkling wines I've had. I am actually in a search now to find it in Massachusetts!

A complex sparkling wine created in a robust style that offers weight and dimension to the palate. With extended time on the yeast this wine has a creamy texture combining aromas of toasted hazelnuts with notes of black cherry baked apple and ginger.

#42, TOP 100 WINES, 93 PTS WINE ENTHUSIAST. The Chandon Pinot Noir Brut shows a beautiful Pinotesque weight, with a cherried edge to the lime and yeast flavors; one of the best Chandon bubblies
