Domaine Chandon has been farming Carneros Pinot Noir for over 30 years. Over this time, we have identified and developed select parcels within our 800-acre ranch that consistently produce the highest quality fruit, culminating in our first Pinot Noir release from the harvest of 1996.
Building on our Carneros Pinot Noir program, this year we launch a reserve label, a limited production bottling of the very best selections from the harvest. Passionately created to capture the distinct elements of our most prized parcels, eight unique barrels have been selected to reflect the individual contribution made by differences in clonal material, site selection, and barrel coopers.
Aromas of blackberry and raspberry fruit complement the savory nuances of coffee, licorice, and truffle. The wine is rich and voluptuous with flavors of blueberry, cinnamon, and chocolate, finishing with soft oak accents.
