Winemaker's Notes:

This Cuvee is made primarily from the 1996 vintage, an early harvest that has produced a small crop of intensely flavored fruit. It offers the balance and elegance that has become Chandons hallmark over the last 25 years. It also delivers the muscle and power characteristic of the superb 1996 vintage. When you taste Cuvee 196, look for pure red apple and cola fruit on the palate and the suggestion of fresh-baked biscuits in the bouquet.

About Domaine Chandon:

As the first American sparking wine venture by a French Champagne house (Moet & Chandon), Domaine Chandon has been a leader in sparkling wine production since 1973. Bringing hundreds of years of winemaking tradition and experience to the Napa Valley, Chandon's principal achievement has been to craft a range of sparkling wines that reflect California's vibrant regional character, yet remain true to the practices of methode traditionnelle. In 1990, the winery parlayed its experience with the classic Champagne varieties into an exciting varietal wine collection. Domaine Chandon continually strives to seek new ways to heighten its reputation as the fullest hospitality experience in Napa Valley, and to provide its guests with inspiration to entertain with Chandon at home.
