Winemaker's Notes

In keeping with the traditional method, we add a small amount of red wine (Pinot Noir) prior to tirage to create the distinctive salmon color with copper hues. The wine's aroma is rich yet elegant with plum and dark cherry fruit layered over notes of nutmeg and cocoa. A bold, yet refined palate structure characterizes this wine with subtle but persistent flavors of raspberry and French toast. The wine finishes with excellent length and richness that will stand up to a variety of foods Crown Cap Information:
Despite their widespread use in champagne facilities and sparkling wineries around the world, crown caps continue to be the winemaker's best-kept secret of the cellar. The primary use for crown caps in modern- day winemaking is for secondary fermentation and aging on the yeasts. Every modern champagne house and sparkling winery in the world uses crown caps during production (including the makers of G.H. Mumm, Perrier Jouet, Roederer, Taittinger, Dom Perignon, Moet & Chandon, and Veuve Clicquot to name a few.) It is not until the final product is prepared for market and disgorged, that a cork is added to each bottle. Many notable wine critics predict however, that non-cork closures for still wines as well as sparkling wines will soon outnumber bottles finished with cork in the marketplace due to their superior ability to guarantee product quality.

A superior sparkling rose, the Domaine Chandon Etoile exhibits incredible and vivid red fruit flavors. One can taste the berries and strawberries, then it sails and shows a tasteful crunch in the aftertaste.

Learn About Rosé

Pink Bubbles Some Champagne and sparkling wine is pink. It's more rare, and more robust, and sometimes more expensive. But it's one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rose sparkler comes from the skins - which means that the wine must include at least one of the red grapes of the traditional method - Pinot Noir or Pinot...
