WineScores' Review

Complex, creamy, fresh. The Lanson is a competitively priced NV (non-vintage, meaning not produced of grapes from one specific vintage/year) Champagne made from a classic blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
It doles out succulent patisserie aromas of warm apple turnovers and berry crumble, along with leesy/autolytic notes and lemon. It is fresh and creamy with good bones overall and notable complexity. Aged three years on lees, then more in bottle afterward, it has attractive frothiness and weight.

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”.
