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.

Rosé Sparkling Wine 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.

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
Great value on this Traditional Method Sparkling rosé from California. Domaine Chandon is a cuvee blend of 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. - Community Wine Reviews
