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.

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.

intense and concentrated red fruit aromas of cherry, strawberry, and cranberry. Cherry flavors with underlying earth tones on the palate, dry soil characteristics, riper pronounced tannin structure, nice balance and length

I've always preferred Pinot from Santa Barbara or the Santa Lucia Highlands, but Carneros has started to find its groove. This Pinot has more of a cinnamon spice as opposed to the smoky plum flavors of the former. A bit of earth. Good structure and complexity for a Pinot under $25. I will start trying some more Pinot's from the Carneros region. Will buy again.

1st single Pinot Noir vineyard ever for Domaine Carneros, estate grown and only sold at the winery. Aromas filled with pomegranate, cherry, vanilla. Palate extends to the varying red fruits and earthy tea leaves. A little tight and needs time but has incredible potential.

Domaine Chandon oversees over 1000 acres of vineyards spread over Mount Veeder, Yountville and Carneros. Pinot Noir is a grape grown most used in Domaine Chandon wines.

Ruby in color, the 2008 Pinot Noir is a ripe vintage with broad, dark flavors. Dark cherry, Chinese five spice with lasting nutmeg create an fresh, inviting style that is enhanced by a rich mid palate. Oak is well integrated and creamy tannins are structured by a mild pepper finish.

Sweet scents of molasses, cherry, and leafy dried herbs pair classically with cedar and pepper. A sip reveals tobacco and dark plums. Lightweight and big on flavor, this wine is a natural for barbecue with its herbaceous, charred finish.

Just delicious, a fascinating counterpoint to the winery's '01 Brut Chardonnay, with which it was coreleased. Shows a beautiful Pinotesque weight, with a cherried edge to the lime and yeast flavors. With a grand cru texture, this is really one of the best Chadon bubblies of recent memory.

Soft-textured, with pretty cream and toasty oak flavors along with ripe cherry- and berry-laced fruit that has attractive earthy, mineral tones. Drink now through 2006.

This winery's Pinots rarely rise to the top, but are almost always soundly made, very good wines, with extra points for complexity. The '05 is directly on par with previous vintages, a silky, dry wine showing rich flavors of cherries, cola, pomegranates and spices. It's the kind of Pinot that pairs well with foods without taking center stage.

WS 90pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: 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 2015. 13,500 cases made. Winemaker Notes - While Domaine Chandon is best known as one of America's top sparkling wine houses, we also produce limited quantities of still wines from estate grown vineyards. We craft these wines by drawing on our experience with the traditional champagne varieties and by showcasing select parcels from our Carneros ranch, where we were among the pioneering growers of this appellation. The Carneros terrain is of well-drained rolling hills and a cool climate due to the influence of nearby San Pablo Bay. This is perfect Pinot Noir country from which Domaine Chandon has been crafting small quantities of this varietal since 1996. As one of the most challenging yet rewarding grape varieties...

Winemaker's Notes:

2010 Domaine Chandon Pinot Noir Carneros 750ml

Tasting Notes:

The concentrated fruit yielded in 2010 resulted in wine with intense plum cherry and boysenberry aromas and flavors, with hints of sandalwood and pipe tobacco. The structure is present and not overt, creating a nice balance between oak and tannins, which will benefit this wine as it ages.
