Natalie's Score: 92/100

This great value in sparkling wine comes from Domaine Chandon, the California arm of Chandon, the producers of Dom Perignon. It is a traditionally crafted wine produced from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and spends 12 months resting on the lees. The result is an elegant wine that delivers the bread-and-toast autolytic notes so beloved in wines produced through the Champagne method. Expect this to be balanced and approachable, with complex red fruit tones. Enjoy with seafood or duck.

Sparkling Rosé food pairings: roasted duck, pasta primavera, tapas featuring marinated olives and chorizo, a charcuterie platter.

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This was the perfect wine to start off the California Wine Show with. The bubbles are fantastic and the brioche and strawberry flavours typical of traditional method sparklers (while Chandon is one of the big players in Champagne, this technically can't be called champagne since it is grown in California). This is your standard blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier, which only macerates for 2-3 hours using a technique known in French as "flash détente". This bubbly is so easy to drink on its own. No food required.

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Definitely a crowd pleaser and an excellent price point too. Aromas of strawberry, orange zest and lime, along with delicate white florals. Dry on the palate, with crisp, persistent bubbles, bright acidity and lovely balance of strawberry and citrus notes, and some drying yeast and bread hints on the finish. Enjoy as an appertif or with any seafood or shellfish appetizers.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A gorgeous well-crafted traditional method sparkling for a fraction of the budget for champagne. In fact, the producers of Domaine Chandon sparkling wines in California are actually the famed Moet et Chandon house in Champagne. This bubbly is dry and crisp with clean field strawberry and raspberry flavours. Enjoy with crab cakes! Tasted June 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This lovely sparkling is all about delicate - delicate floral aromas, delicate salmon colour, delicate, mousse. And then it explodes on the tongue with strawberry and ginger. Fun and fruity and feminine… a great celebratory choice for a shower or tea. Tasted 22 November, 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Great value on this Traditional Method sparkling rosé from California. Domaine Chandon is a cuvee blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and spent 12 months resting on the lees. The result is an elegant wine that delivers the fresh mushroom, bread-and-toast autolytic notes so beloved in wines produced through the Champagne method. - Community Wine Reviews
