Domaine Chandon 2006 <i>Les Collines</i> Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir Reserve PHILOSOPHY
While Domaine Chandon is best known as one of America's top sparkling wine houses, we also produce limited quantities of still wines from the traditional champagnes varieties. We have now expanded our offerings to include premium wines from regions that are well-known for producing excellent quality Pinot Noir grapes. In addition to a Reserve Pinot Noir from select parcels from our estate in Carneros, we now also offer a Reserve Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley and from Santa Rita Hills.

The Santa Rita Hills appellation in Santa Barbara County is one of California's premier cool-climate viticultural regions. The rolling hills run from east to west, which allows cool ocean breezes from the nearby Pacific Ocean to enter the valley created by these hills. This geographic feature combined with the rocky soil creates a perfect setting for growing Pinot Noir grapes.

TASTING NOTES
This rich and expressive pinot noir is immediately defined by its aromas of lavender and fresh ripe raspberries that mingle with hints of crushed granite and sandalwood. Expansive flavors including black cherry and pomegranate are a prelude to the silky texture and quintessential flintiness on the finish that is common from the Santa Rital Hills region. The medium body, balanced acidity and well integrated tannins suggest that this wine could be cellared for 5 to 7 years and yet will pari well now with a variety of dishes.

FOOD & WINE PAIRING
Try this wine with roast pork loin with a fruit reduction sauce. It would pair nicely with pheasant as well.
