Canada — Ontario • $29.95 • 91/100

The non-vintage Cuvée Catharine Brut is generally about 80% Chardonnay with the balance Pinot Noir. While it is mostly fermented in stainless steel, a small percentage is in barrels. Second fermentation is in bottle, where it is aged for at least 30 months prior to disgorging. The nose shows apple blossoms, lemons and apples, with a slight toasty note and a hint of wet stones. The wine is dry, with firm acidity that masks a suggestion of softening sweetness. The palate has a lightly creamy texture, that dries into a very crisp and mineral-tinged finish. This continues to be a Niagara standard. • Tasted 2017-03-24 • LCBO id#217521 • Find it at your nearest LCBO
