LCBO Text Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
Gold Medal winner at the 2017 National Wine Awards of Canada. TASTING NOTE: Here's a juicy, fullish, succulent gamay with a fine measure of typical red berry fruit, if riper than the mean for Ontario. Indeed alcohol is a touch warming, but this remains balanced and fresh. An excellent example. Score - 90 (John Szabo, MS, winealign.com, July 27, 2017) Price $ 17.95
