This Californian sparkling wine producer is owned by one of Champagne's most revered wineries, Moët & Chandon, the same house that makes top-of-the-line Dom Pérignon. Chandon is actually no newcomer to the scene having been founded in the 1970s, and the first winery to make sparkling wine using the traditional Champagne method (Méthode Traditionelle). Blanc De Noirs This bubbly offers terrific value for the money; a great bottle to serve at small or larger gatherings given its taste: price ratio. Crisp, clean and dry with aromas of green apple and baked bread. Terrific!

Blanc De Noirs Sparkling Wine food pairings: fried chicken, vegetable curry, fish tacos.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A fresh apple and brioche avalanche off of the exceptional mousse in this sparkling wine made from Pinot Noir. This is a lively elixir to be sure with high crisp acidity, and citrus/green apple cleanse. Tertiary aromas and flavours of yeast, honey, wet stones, baked pears, toast. This is a lovely California bubbly from the house of Moet & Chandon. Enjoy sparkling wine with just about anything. I learned that in Champagne last year.
Tasted: February 2017
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Refreshing! Prominent notes include citrus blossoms, apricot puree, and freshly baked almandine croissant. It's a fresh, crisp and clean traditional method sparkling wine for a fraction of the price of Champagne. Tasted Feb 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
