Canada — Ontario • $30.15 • 89/100

This traditional method sparkler is from the second (and last) disgorgement of the cuvée largely based on 2013 vintage wines, so it has spent two years on lees in the bottle. It is 84% Pinot Noir and 16% Chardonnay. The wine is a pretty, pale salmon-pink. Fresh and slightly lifted apple blossom aromas are backed by notes of perfumed red apples, strawberries, cherries and white peaches, with a suggestion of dried herbs and a light bready note. It is off-dry, with crisp acidity and a pleasant drying and stony finish. Very nicely done. • Tasted 2017-03-24 • LCBO id#0 • Find it at your nearest LCBO
