Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer LUC BELAIRE
Another 599 case REPEAT of the popular, non-vintage LUC BELAIRE that was last released on Septmber 4, 2021 at $39.95. Unable to get a bottle for assessment from agent. Here is my previous note: Bright medium straw colour. Very spicy, sweet apple pie nose with some toasty notes. Sweet, medium to medium-light bodied, somewhat soft, spicy, apple purée flavours with a straightforward finish that has modest effervescence. This pricey sparkler is made in the economical Charmat method - not the traditional Champagne method. It has 12.5% alcohol and according to the LCBO website now 40 g/L residual sugar. It is the most overpriced popular sparkling wine I may have ever tasted. CSPC 632356
