WineScores' Review

Ruby, restrained, umami.
Chic Fille is JoieFarm's proprietor and winemaker Heidi Noble's second label; the term translates to pretty girl or cool girl.
Made entirely of Pinot Noir and in a natural method, Chic Fille is the result of practices she's been playing with over fifteen vintages: native fermentation, lees contact and semi-carbonic fermentation, for example.
Because of the ongoing success of Noble's JoieFarm rose, it stands to reason she would do so for this new label also.
Brilliant ruby with watermelon glints and aromas of tangy cherries, red currents, dried orange peel, tealeaf and cedar forest, It is dry and textural; pristine with restrained fruit and herbal tones it has a distinct savoury/umami character.

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”.
