France — Burgundy • $23.95 • 90/100

This blanc de noirs — 100% Pinot Noir — is pale straw in colour. The nose is subtle: lightly toasty, with red apples (perhaps with some caramel on them), lemon and honeydew melon. Certainly off-dry, the vivid acidity almost masks the sweetness, and keeps the palate focused. An additional strawberry note adds complexity to the fruit on the palate, before the finish dries with a lingering citrus-minerality. There is lots of complexity here for the price — a very good wine and a compelling value. • Tasted 2017-07-22 • LCBO id#420984 • Find it at your nearest LCBOVINEXX (Agent)
