NV Domaine Chandon Étoile

Community Tasting Note


83 Points

Tuesday, December 25, 2012 - Very light "pop" on opening. Had about half the effervescence I would expect. Dark gold color. Subdued nose, more notable for what was missing. No citrus, no yeast. Fruit on the palate had crossed from integrated to muddled. Semi-flat. The problem with NV is you can't be certain of it's age. I expected it to be better than their basic NV Brut and it wasn't. I chalk this one up to a bad bottle.
