Sonoma Domaine Chandon Carneros Pinot Noir 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Carneros Pinot Noir exhibits delicate aromas of lavender, juniper and red cherry along with hints of sweet brown spice and sage. The striking ruby color foreshadows the rich flavors of boysenberry, black raspberry and red cherry. The concentration of the 2007 vintage is evident with the vanilla spice, pomegranate and mineral characters in the finish. The roundness in the mid-palate and well integrated tannins should allow this wine to age with elegance. Serve this versatile wine alongside lighter game meats such as quail or duck topped with a reduction sauce and lentils on the side.

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.

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.

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...

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.
