Blue Mountain Reserve Brut R.D. Méthode Traditionelle 2005

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFun to see an RD coming out of Blue Mountain, in this case a 2005 that was recently disgorged (RD). The blend is 60/35/5 pinot noir/chardonnay/pinot gris. There is no reserve is this wine and according to winemaker Matt Mavety it isn't required due to the uniformity of the blend from year to year. The wine spends six years on its lees developing an aromatic red fruit nose with toasted nuts and lees and a whiff of minerality. Dry, firm complex and impressive it sells out in moments. Best get on the list.Tasted: 26 October 2013Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
