The Grapes

Pinot Noir

The main varietal in Chandon California's sparkling wines, Pinot Noir adds structure, body, and nuances of red fruit, such as cherry and strawberry, to each of the blends.


This grape variety brings a crisp delicacy to Chandon sparkling wine blends, adding flavors of apple, pear, and peach.

Pinot Meunier

This close relative of Pinot Noir is the most widely grown grape in the French Champagne region. Its flavors are similar to those of Pinot Noir, although slightly earthier, and almost nutty.
