Domaine Chandon Blanc de Noirs
Made from Pinot Noir, although the color is golden straw, and the wine is light and airy in the mouth. The raspberry and strawberry flavors are the giveaway. Absolutely delicious, with a refined mouthfeel, and the price is a bargain.
A lively quaff, this is soft and loaded with fresh strawberry and creamy, spicy vanilla notes. Drink now
Odd as it may sound, Domaine Chandon is a Pinot Noir house. For more than a quarter of a century, their Brut, Blanc de Noirs and Reserve have been based upon Pinot Noir and its cousin Pinot Meunier. In an effort to showcase these noble red varietals, they created a unique and distinctive style of Blanc de Noirs in 1974. Since then, this fruit-driven, full-flavored sparkling wine, featuring Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, has become one of their most popular wines. It’s forward and generous with intense ripe Pinot Noir fruit and lush complex flavors.
