92 Points Wine Spectator, December 15, 2008
Pinot Noir's seductive aromas and luscious berry fruit flavors are the inspiration behind Chandon Reserve Pinot Noir Rosé. With a heritage that includes centuries of growing Pinot Noir, and with over half of our vineyards planted to this variety, our expertise with Pinot Noir is extensive and our enthusiasm for creating innovative wine styles with this variety is unlimited. Chandon Reserve Pinot Noir Rosé showcases the lively fruit characters of Pinot Noir combined with the toasty qualities of reserve wines and extended aging.
This copper-hued rosé is as spectacular to look as it is to taste. Aromas unfold with layers of strawberry cream and freshly baked bread. The first taste sensation of a fresh, refreshing palate with strawberry and tart cherry flavors gives way to a creamy mid-palate of toasty raspberry and plum. True to the Reserve style, it offers seamless structure and a lingering finish.

Domaine Chandon's winemaker Tom Tiburzi suggests pairing the richness of this wine with grilled salmon or strawberry shortcake.
