WineScores' Review

Creamy, fine, fleshy
Michel Loriot's 100% Pinot Meunier bubble is a rarity among Champagne, where the variety is generally a third wheel in the blend if used at all.
Because it is a blanc de noirs (white from black) it's a golden hue with creamy lemony notes along with red apple peel and small tangy berries and warm apple sauce and toasted nuts. Lovely weight, fine bubbles and a fantastic fleshy rounded mouthfeel.

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”.
