WineScores' Review

Precision, tangy, finesse.
Made by the Spurrier family (Steven Spurrier--of the 1976 Judgment of Paris notoriety) from their vineyard in Dorset, England which is planted with Chardonnay (55%), Pinot Noir (25%), and Pinot Meunier (20%).
This particular fizz (one of three Bride Valley makes) is Pinot Meunier (50%), Chardonnay (30%), and Pinot Noir.
It has a fine bead and lovely oyster shell, chalk, tangy citrus and crunchy yellow apples. It has a fine mousse, leesy character and wonderful precision. A focused and finessed fizz with delightful levity.

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”.
