Domaine Chandon


Sparkling Wine
Napa Valley

5 cases produced

Sparkling wine fills the glasses that toast life’s most important milestones, from engagements and anniversaries to graduations and promotions. For us at Chandon, the celebration begins years earlier when we begin to craft a wine worthy of such an occasion. This wine, produced from the first vintage of the new millennium, has been aged on the lees for more than 10 years, developing a creamy texture and flavor notes that range from toasted hazelnuts to lemon custard. The grapes were grown on our Mt. Veeder Ranch, a site that is as rugged and spectacular today as it was 40 years ago when our founding president, John Wright, planted it with our first Chardonnay vines. The winning bidder of this lot is invited to work with our winemaking team to develop the dosage that will finish this wine.

Winemaker, Tom Tiburzi

Tom's love affair with wine began long before coming to Chandon. The son of an Italian immigrant chef and retail wine-and-spirits merchant, food and wine are in his blood. Tom worked in the family stores since early childhood, and along with family and friends, made wine at home using a shared press in the garage. After earning a degree in Environmental Studies and Biology from the University of California at Berkeley, and an early foray into microbiology, Tom reconnected with the family's passion and parlayed his scientific training into a professional winemaking career. He's now spent the last 23 years mastering the art of sparkling winemaking at Chandon. His expertise in the science of sparkling winemaking along with his creative blending skills have played a key role in the creation of Chandon's diverse sparkling wine cuvées.

Country born: United States

Education: Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies in Biology from University of California at Berkeley.

Years in the wine industry: 20-30 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Tom continues to demonstrate his exceptional talents as he oversees Domaine Chandon's sparkling program, carrying on a tradition of crafting the finest and broadest range of sparkling-wine styles in America.
