Domaine Chandon produces limited quantities of varietal wines from estate-grown vineyards. These wines are crafted by drawing on its experience with the traditional champagne varietals–Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay–as well as the grape variety Napa Valley is best known for, Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tasting Notes

Rose petal, milk chocolate and dark berry aromas hint at what to expect on the palate. Blackberry, cherry, cola, cocoa and baking spices create a symphony of flavors that are perfectly balanced with silky tannins, the hallmark of tremendous aging potential.

Food and Wine Pairing

While this wine calls out for robust meaty dishes like braised beef short ribs or coffee-rubbed tri tip, it is equally fantastic with bean ragout or pasta with roasted vegetables and pecorino cheese.
