WineScores' Review

Delicate, fresh, crisp.
In 1997, school friends the Collovrays and the Terriers began a new adventure by purchasing Chateau d'Antugnac in the Haute Valleee de l'Aude, in the Pyrenees; one of the Languedoc's best regions. Here the terroir makes for fresh wines, while the expertise of the fourth-generation winemakers ensures elegance and finesse.
It comes from 15-year-old vines grown on high elevation clay-limestone soils.
A shy nose of golden fruit and honey, citrus and mineral result in a similarly delicate palate of crisp tree fruits, mineral and citrus. It's primarily fresh, but has a creamy edge and lemony finish. A straightforward but fine everyday white for fish, white meats, creamy sauces.

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”.
