"Surprising amount of fruit in this Blanc de Blancs based on L'Acadie Blanc with (13 percent) Seyval Blanc. Fine aromatic grip surrounds a mix of stone and also green fruit but what is most special here is the intensity of the bubble and fine purity of the lees. Would never see this as autolytic, oxidative or yeasty but only in terms of salty, marine airy excitement. Oysters are an ideal match. Drink 2023-2029." Michael Godel
"Fresh white floral aromatics with an umami lean on the nose. The wine communicates refreshment on the palate with bright, crunchy acidity. There is a lot of talk about hybrids these days with climate change and a great example of how the bar is being raised every vintage with these varieties." Jenna Briscoe
David Lawrason, influential wine advisor for the events at cities across Canada, describes in a post from Vancouver, "It's on a coast-to-coast mission to impress"
