|CHATEAU DES CHARMES BRUT SPARKLING Méthode Traditionelle, VQA Niagara Peninsula
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
||CHATEAU DES CHARMES
|Bright pale straw colour. Attractive, very faintly toasty, gently complex, fresh, ripe lemon-apple puree nose with some mineral notes. Dry, medium bodied, quite well structured, slightly toasty, ripe lemon-apple meringue flavours with a lingering, crisp, mineral-tinged finish. This tasty new Vintages Essential is a blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay that has 12.5% alcohol and 12 g/L residual sugar. Made in the classic French méthode traditionnelle with lees aging in the bottle. TONY ASPLER / 89-points / BEST BUY - Bright, pale straw in colour, this bubbly has an active mousse of tiny bubbles. Its toasty nose of apple with a honeyed note signals a medium-bodied sparkler with a touch of honeyed sweetness in mid palate kept in check by fresh acidity that gives commendable length on the palate.
Dry, Complex, Harmonious

A Best Buy
|Ontario's sparkling wines have been opening eyes, turning heads, making a splash - no matter how you choose to trac it, their trajectory has been impressive. This is from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and will deliver great balance and freshness with apple, pear and peach tones with underlying fresh bread notes. Perfect for anything from seafood appetizers to popcorn.
