Tiny bubbles elevate a complex bouquet of almond, honey, and buttered toast with a distinctive hint of citrus blossom that arouses the senses. étoile`s structure is long, soft, and creamy with flavors of fuji apple, candied ginger, and a savory hazelnut spice. These flavors intensify across the palate, building to a lingering yet, lively finish.

Review
Beautiful balance of yeast, citrus, nuts and good fruit makes for a very pleasant, easy-to-like mouthful." - Wall Street Journal

Wine maker notes
French for star -- étoile represents our commitment to a classically crafted apéritif style that personifies elegance and grace. This prestige cuvée is designed to achieve a seamlessness and balance that can only be realized by selecting the finest fruit from our cool and cold climate vineyard sites. Resting in the bottle sur lees- on yeast- for a minimum of five years, the wine evolves, building layers of depth, complexity, and harmony while retaining texture and vibrancy. Enjoy étoile upon release or for years to come.

Technical notes
Appellation: Napa/Sonoma Composition: Pinot Noir Chardonnay Pinot Meunier Aging: Aged sur lees since 1998, for a minimum 5 years.

Food pairing
Chandon`s Winemaker Wayne Donaldson recommend pairing étoile with delicate, sweet or even aromatic flavors. Enjoy it with sautéed sea bass, dungeness crabcakes, grilled scallops, or on its own before the start of a meal.
