Quotidien Brut 2016 Reviews

90 points – Michelle Bouffard – Wine Align – July 2017 Nez tout en fraîcheur avec des notes de fruits mûrs de citron et de pomme et une touche de miel. Corps léger et dotée d’une texture délicate. Simple, mais bien fait. Fresh nose with notes of ripe fruit of lemon and apple and a touch of honey. Lightweight […]

Plein de Vie Brut 2016 Reviews

87 points – Treve Ring – Gismondi On Wine – July 2017 Tastes like summer. 2016 Plein de Vie Brut is a pinot meunier, pinot noir, chardonnay charmat fizz. Like its white brethern it is a bit foamy but bright, fresh and friendly showing just-crushed raspberries and strawberry jam, on a bright, frothy palate all with a kiss […]

“En Famille” Reserve Gewurztraminer 2015 Reviews

Kurtis Kolt – The Georgia Straight – March 2017 There’s so much intensity and purity of fruit with this wine, it’s almost like a Gewürztraminer reduction. It has all the attributes we expect from the variety; all of the litchi, rosewater, and ginger are present and opulent, with a nice dusting of sage to balance things out. The […]

“En Famille” Reserve Chardonnay 2015 Reviews

Kurtis Kolt – The Georgia Straight – March 2017 A departure from the Un-Oaked Chardonnay above, the “En Famille” take on the grape is fermented with native yeast and carries some enjoyable lifted oak, perfectly balancing all the wine’s orchard fruit. All the pears are here, too: Bosc! Anjou! Bartlett! Each one of them is perfectly ripe yet […]

Un-Oaked Chardonnay 2016 Reviews

90 points – Rick Vansickle – Wines in Niagara – April 2017 A highly aromatic and pure expression of Chardonnay with ripe tropical fruits, apple and citrus notes on the nose. It maintains freshness on the palate with a range of tropical fruit flavours, pineapple and touch of citrus to go with subtle minerality on the finish. A delight. […]

Muscat 2016 Reviews

91 points – Beppi Crosariol – Globe and Mail – May 2017 If one could bottle the sun, it might taste something like this. Light-bodied (at just 10.8 per cent alcohol) yet bursting with floral-spice aromatics and crisp, slightly off-dry flavours of peach, lemonade and white table grapes. Hello, summer. 89 points – John Szabo – Wine Align – April 2017 A […]
