Chandon By The Bay Reserve Blanc de Blancs is crafted with Carneros-grown grapes (92% Chardonnay, 8% Pinot Blanc). Due to its proximity to the San Pablo Bay, the cooler Carneros climate results in an extended growing season, producing grapes with crisp acidity and a smooth, elegant mouthfeel.
Chandon By The Bay is a classic Blanc de Blancs, with the added character of partial oak-barrel fermentation.
