Chandon Blanc de Noirs 750ML
Chandon Blanc de Noirs is characteristically a delicate salmon color. Wild cherry, currants and strawberries dominate both aroma and flavor. These vibrant red fruit flavors linger across the palate and are balanced with lively acidity and a soft, lingering, creamy texture. Winemaker Tom Tiburzi suggests you try this versatile wine with everything from fruity to spicy to salty foods including Southwestern, Latin American, Mexican and Asian cuisine. Also pair this mostly Pinot Noir sparkler with the foods you would chose to eat with a varietal Pinot Noir such as roasted beets, mushrooms and salmon.
Made from Pinot Noir, although the color is golden straw, and the wine is light and airy in the mouth. The raspberry and strawberry flavors are the giveaway. Absolutely delicious, with a refined mouthfeel, and the price is a bargain.

Creamy vanilla and raspberry aromas lead to appealing flavors of strawberry and spicy lemon in this fun glass of bubbles. Drink now. 80,000 cases made.
