WineScores' Review

Textural, restrained, umami.
Chic Fille is JoieFarm proprietor and winemaker, Heidi Noble’s side label; the term translates to pretty girl or cool girl.
This one (there is a small series under this label) is made entirely of Pinot Blanc and also in a natural method. Chic Fille is the result of practices she's been playing with for a decade: native yeast fermentations, lees contact and semi-carbonic fermentations, for example.
It has an earthy character, is leesy with notes of orange pekoe tea, which is echoed on the palate. Fresh, salty and textural in the mouth, it will certainly spark conversation.
Limited availability, 11% alcohol.

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”.
