About Domaine Chandon
Founded in 1973, Domaine Chandon was
the first American sparkling wine venture established by a
French Champagne house (Moët & Chandon). Chandon crafts a
range of sparkling wines that reflect California's vibrant
regional character yet remain true to the practices of
méthode traditionnelle. A leader in viticulture as well as
winemaking, Domaine Chandon is at the forefront of
sustainable farming practices and continues to replenish,
control, and in many cases restore the natural habitat.
Domaine Chandon's acclaimed fine dining restaurant étoile
received a star rating in the 2010 Michelin Guide. The
winery was selected "Winery of the Year 2005" by the
California Tourism Association.
Blending tradition and innovation,
Chandon wines have a confident, sophisticated, food-friendly
style that will excite your senses and inspire your palate.
Chandon sparkling wines include:
Brut Classic - Classic balance typifies this
refreshingly soft, yet dry wine. The wine delivers complex
apple and pear characteristics accented by citrus spice over
notes of almond and caramel in the bouquet. Driven by
Chardonnay, this wine delivers complex apple and pear
characteristics accented by citrus over notes of almond and
Blanc de Noirs - Chandon Blanc de Noirs is
characteristically a delicate salmon color driven by Pinot
Noir. Dark cherry, currant and strawberry dominate both
aroma and flavor with hints of cassis and blackberry.
Chandon Rosé - In the glass, the color is a vibrant
pink with a blush of sunset. Intense ripe strawberry, juicy
watermelon and fresh red cherry fruit aromas and flavors are
interwoven with apple, pear and stone fruit. On the palate
the wine is creamy and seductive, with defined structure
from the addition of still Pinot Noir at tirage.
Extra-Dry Riche - An inviting floral bouquet is
followed by rich, honeyed fruit flavors that harmonize with
the velvety-soft texture. Luscious peach and white nectarine
layered with honey and apricot persist throughout the long
étoile Brut - Tiny bubbles elevate an attractive
bouquet of ginger and brown spice. Appealing baked apple,
honey and cinnamon flavors meld seamlessly with nutty
caramel flavors gained from extended sur lees aging.
étoile Rosé - This wine is elegant and restrained
with fresh aromas of plum, raspberry and nutmeg. These
aromas follow through on the palate and are layered with
subtle and delicate flavors of cocoa powder. The wine
finishes with excellent length and richness that will stand
up to a variety of foods.
