Vintage: 2009

Domaine Chandon

Cabernet Sauvignon
Mount Veeder

10 cases produced


Best known as a sparkling house, Domaine Chandon also crafts three fine still wines— Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay— that often garner high accolades. In addition to the largest land holding in Carneros, the winery also owns vineyards in Mount Veeder and Yountville. A small portion of the warmer two AVAs is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon because the grape is well suited to those regions. With this lot, we demonstrate our ability to craft food-friendly still wines with the first-ever Cabernet Sauvignon under the Domaine Chandon label.
