Turn traditional holiday dinners into a savvy food and wine extravaganza. This set includes two award winning wines as well as the Domaine Chandon Cookbook - highlighting the passed 30 years of wine and culinary brilliance.
In keeping with the traditional rosé winemaking method, we add a small amount of red wine (Pinot Noir) prior to tirage to create the distinctive salmon color with copper hues. The wine is elegant and restrained with fresh aromas of plum, raspberry and nutmeg. These aromas follow through on the palate and are layered with subtle and delicate flavors of cocoa powder. The wine finishes with excellent length and richness that will stand up to a variety of foods.
Carneros Pinot Noir: This newly released 2008 vintage exhibits delicate aromas of lavender, juniper and red cherry along with hints of sweet brown spice and sage. The striking ruby color foreshadows the rich flavors of boysenberry, black raspberry and red cherry. The concentration of the 2008 vintage is evident with the vanilla spice, pomegranate and mineral characters in the finish. The round mid-palate and well integrated tannins will allow this wine to age with elegance.
