Domaine Chandon "Classic" Brut

SKU #1237876 Jancis Robinson

 Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Containing 10-20% reserve wines. At least 12 months on yeast. Being California, the blurb includes food pairing: 'Winemaker Tom Tiburzi recommends serving Chandon Brut Classic to refresh the palate when eating salty, creamy, or nutty foods such as Caesar salad, fried calamari, oysters, or fresh sashimi and sushi.' Bigger bubbles than the other Chandon white NVs. Icing sugar and green apples on the nose. Immediate appeal even if I'm not sure I would keep it for very long. Slightly sweet and sour. But very clean and zesty on the nose. And it has none of the hint of hardness on the finish that the Argentine Chandon NV has.  (4/2014)

Wine Enthusiast

 A blend of 68% Chardonnay and 12% Pinot Noir from sundry Northern California sites, this is a dry, citrusy and easy-drinking sparkling wine, ideal for special get togethers or as an opener to the night. Fresh pear and citrus intermingle throughout bright acidity and a lingering finish.  (12/2014)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. 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.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
