Chandon Blanc de Pinot Noir is Generously Fresh. Crafted using primarily Pinot Noir grapes that have been immediately pressed to give a "Blanc" juice, it is a lush, robust style with intense flavors and rich boldness. Blanc de Pinot Noir is a rare sparkling wine style that Chandon has been perfecting for more than 40 years - it's the ace up Chandon's sleeve.

Powerful yet refreshing, Chandon Blanc de Pinot Noir showcases the ripe softness of California Pinot Noir balanced by Chandon's signature vibrancy. Rich aromas of fresh figs, stone fruit and nutmeg lead to flavors of elderberry, red currant, and toasted almond on the palate. Thoughtful and bold, it's an authentic Blanc de Pinot Noir style.

Enjoy It Chandon Blanc de Pinot Noir is incredibly versatile, making it the go to pour from everything fruity to spicy, and salty to sweet. It pairs great with spicy enchiladas, grilled chicken and mushrooms, wood fired pizza, and sushi and shrimp salad.

Critical Acclaim:

92 points - Wilfred Wong of
"COMMENTARY: I have found the Chandon Blanc de Noirs to be a very consistent and excellent sparkling wine. Having tasted it since its inception in the mid-1970s, I have enjoyed it with a wide variety of foods choices as well as occasions. And now there is a change and Pauline Lhote-who "at age 14 told her parents she wanted to be a winemaker, and specifically that she wanted to make sparkling wine" -an excerpt from her bio from the winery's website. Everything seems to be changing with the times. This wine is fresher, zesty, and reflects the lighter style of foods that have become the trend. Now at 34 Lhote is re-making the Chandon Blanc de Noirs, and it is quite stunning. TASTING NOTES: This wine is fresh and bright. Its aromas and flavors of wild strawberries, bright cherries, and just a hint of yeastiness should pair it well with fresh salmon sushi, steamed Dungeness crab accented with cherry tomatoes, or lightly-seared sea scallops."

90 points - Wine Enthusiast
"Made from 93% Pinot Noir and 7% Pinot Meunier, this is a lovely sparkling wine, rounded and layered with moderate acidity. The flavors dance around aspects of wild strawberry, raspberry and melon, with a lasting tease of hazelnut."

90 points - Decanter
"A subtle pink grapefruit character with toasted hazelnuts, and aromas of apples and pears. Dry, vivacious and very accessible."
