Chateau Des Charmes N/V Brut Sparkling Wine - 88pts

Chateau Des Charmes N/V Brut Sparkling Wine (Niagara-on-The-Lake) Niagara Peninsula - Ontario

Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $23.95
Alcohol: 12.5%
Date Tasted: March 5th, 2017

Tasting Notes: New label, same consistent execution. A
 traditional method Brut with fine, persistent beads, produced from Chardonnay and Pinto Noir grapes sourced from vineyards in the Niagara Peninsula by Chateau Des Charmes. Offers a nice balance between its tangy citrus and ripe fruit characters on the peaches'n'cream nose and the yeasty, brioche-infused, off-dry palate. Finish is lively and refreshing with lingering minerality and citrus rind notes. 

Lacks the depth and refinement of the more revered sparkling wines of the Peninsula, yet, at $24, you won't find better value in the market. Drink now-2020.
