About Domaine Chandon
Set up by Moët-Hennessy in the 1970s, Domaine Chandon was the first California sparkling-wine specialist established by a French house using traditional Champagne methods. Traditional grapes too: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are harvested from 1000 acres in Yountville, Carneros and Mount Veeder.

I'm In Love
Formerly of the Napa Valley, California, I fell in love with Blanc De Noirs when Chandon first started making it. My brother and I used to sit on their veranda and enjoy the bubbly along with the beautiful view. Over the years, the winery has been very good to me. They sent me 2 complimentary bottles when my first grandson was born. I would not ever have a celebration without Blanc De Noirs. It is truly my favorite of all sparkling wines.
A lot for a little!
I have been drinking the Blanc De Noirs for years. It is consistently good. Nice bubbles, not too sweet, great color and a fantastic price. Excellent for parties or for when you are ordering at a restaurant and want to enjoy champagne without taking a second mortgage.
This is something I happened across years ago and I stil love it so much. Somewhat fruity in nature and a pleasurable experience all around. I have had people that tried Dom say that they like chandon more.

Adored by critics, prized by collectors, Pinot Noir is one of most tantalizing yet temperamental varietals in the world. For many wine enthusiasts, this is part of the appeal of Pinot -- it doesn't reveal its charms easily. Pinot Noir's virtue also stems from the unique characteristics of the grape. The skins are especially delicate, which accounts for the lighter color and body of finished wine. But, despite the delicacy, the best wines have excellent backbone and...
