WineScores' Review

Plush, distinct, harmonious.
As a neighbor of Bordeaux, wine has been planted in the Bergerac region since Roman times. While mostly unheard of, it was once of France's first appellations, formed in 1936.
This Grand Cuvee is a blend of the classics: Cabernet and Merlot, and offers value we often don't think about from its prestigious neighbor.
Plush aromas of purple berries and violets are layered with unctuous chocolate, licorice, vanilla and baking spices. The palate, while leaner that the nose eludes, is structured and balanced with fine spice and cocoa.
A harmonious wine.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.

We do not share your email address with anyone. Your email address will be used for the WineDiva newsletter You can opt out of receiving the newsletter anytime.
