    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.

    In our still wine program, we aim to reflect the unique elements of Carneros. Starting with our highest quality fruit, we develop wines of complexity and intrigue that are rich and supple on the palate and exhibit a brightness of fruit. Prior to the 2000 vintage, these wines were available only at the winery. With the 2000 vintage, Domaine Chandon proudly introduces our still wines to selected fine dining establishments and fine wine retailers across the country.

    The 2000 season was generally regarded as one of exceptional quality with cool evening growing conditions prevailing. Yields were slightly lower than normal, resulting in small berries with excellent fruit concentration. The Domaine Chandon Pinot Noir is deep plum red with cherry hues. The aromas reveal layers of cinnamon, fig, nutmeg and toffee with a note of spicy French oak. Flavors of brown spice, black cherry, caramel, and a subtle hint of truffle characterize the palate. The wine is powerful and intense, revealing complex layers of ripe fruit and a long, satisfying finish.

    Domaine Chandon's Executive Chef Eric Torralba and Winemaker Wayne Donaldson suggest serving our Pinot Noir with roasted meats and poultry, duck confit, semi-hard cheeses such as Parmesan, and dishes rich in earthy flavors like those with wild mushrooms.

    Chandon California is Born French, Raised in California

    Born in 1973 from the sparkling connection between two pioneers, and raised among the peaks and valleys of the golden state of California, we are Chandon California. The vision of our founders? To make the very best Californian sparkling wine possible. Vibrant, fresh, approachable, Chandon California uses the same three noble grape varieties used in Champagne (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier), but our grapes enjoy the sunnier Californian climate, resulting in flavor that is more fruit-forward. We invite you to grab your squad, pop a bottle, and discover more.
