WineScores' Review

Rare, complex, xxx,br> A rare blend of 55% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier from six precious reserve vintages: 1988, 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010. The first release of this wine, (this very bottling) was 2017; another will be released for 2019 and with only 3g/L dosage, this truly is a dry Champagne.
Golden, leesy and autolytic with roasted almonds, buttered brioche, yellow apple, Asian pears and star fruit aromas. Uber chic with a fine bead and superlative complexity, it is creamy yet bright, woven and crunchy with a bold lemon and nutty finish.
Pair: aged French cheeses, sea bass, white meats, mushrooms and crayfish.

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”.
