WineScores' Review

New, unique, chic.
Project 'B' is a winemaking partnership between two worlds, Old and New, creating a classically French, New World wine.
Working together, from France Erin Monnin winemaker for Boutinot, and from BC, Michael Bartier of Bartier Bros. this Sauvignon Blanc comes from plot B in a premium single vineyard located in Oliver. A small portion (4.5%) of the blend is barrel-aged Semillon, and 2.1% is Gewurztraminer.
The name Project 'B' name is a no-brainer, there are a lot of Bs here, a common thread with this project, including Boutinot Rhone's symbol of quality, the worker bee.
Notes of candle wax and grass clippings, grilled lemons, white peach and nettle are layered with hints of mineral oil. It is dry and precise, slick and chic. Flavours of star fruit, crunchy yellow pear, lemon peel dominate over vague spice flavours. The finish is long, lively and pithy.

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”.
