Domaine Chandon Extra Dry Riche follows and maintains a strong French heritage of using the finest Chardonnays. Floral and fruity, it is harmonized into a velvety soft texture. Peach, honey and apricot provide the flavor palette. Domaine Chandon Extra Dry Riche matches well with spicy foods, coconut chicken curry with pilaf is a great pairing.

"This is rich with sweet jasmine, dried apricot and honey. Plenty layered on the palate but tempered by a core of acidity, it's more sweet than dry. The blend is Chardonnay Pinot Noir Muscat (which explains the hay yellow color) and Pinot Meunier." - 87/100Wine Enthusiast


At Chandon California, we take the responsibility of caring for the land seriously, grateful for its vital role in creating our wines. We’re committed to sustainable farming practices that consider the entire ecosystem, from the vines on which our grapes grow to the other plant and animal life in our environment.

By approaching our ecosystem as a whole, we ensure that we not only will be able to continue to grow the grapes for our award-winning wines, we’ll be able to maintain the quality and character of our terroir into the future.

Not all of the grapes we grow at Chandon California require the same amount of water. We gather precise information on the level of water in the soils and use this data to make sure every drop of water we apply is needed. In seasons when natural rainfall is low, we adjust the farming operations to reduce water consumption in the vineyards. This way, the vines can continue delivering the grape quality needed with less water consumption and evaporation from the soils.

Starting with a holistic approach we have been able to reduce fertilizers to a minimum. We utilize other crops (called cover crops) in the off-season to maintain soil fertility and avoid erosion from winter rains. Composting has also helped us “build” our soils, making them rich in organic matter and nutrients, which results in a better capacity to hold water. This helps our soils hold more water and keep more nutrients to enrich our vines.

We’ve even completely eliminated the use of synthetic herbicides in our vineyards. And the benefits aren’t just good for our lands. They’re good for our wines.
