1999 Domaine Chandon "Etoile" Brut

SKU #1025570 Wine Enthusiast

 Years of lees contact have made this bubbly soft, creamy and complex, although it still has a crisp spine of acidity. The flavors are rich and doughy, with a ripe finish of strawberries and peaches. It’s a little sweet, and should hold well for several years.  (12/ 2005)

Wine Spectator

 Crisp and sleek, with lively ginger and spice aromas and vibrant citrus, lemon curd and hazelnut flavors. Drink now.  (11/ 2012)

K&L Notes

This cuvée of étoile Brut was aged for 5 years on the yeast, helping it evolve gracefully into a harmonious, seamless and exceptionally balanced sparkling wine with complex layers, elegant nuances and a lingering, yet lively finish. Fuji apple, candied ginger and hazelnut spice flavors. Hints of citrus blossom with a long, soft and creamy structure.

The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
