Benjamin Bridge Brut Méthode Classique 2009

Gaspereau Valley, Nova Scotia, CanadaThe 2009 Brut is a serious traditional method sparkler, made from decidedly untraditional grapes: l'acadie, chardonnay and seyval. Hints of honey, citrus and mineral on the nose lead to a crisp and vibrant citrus and mineral-driven palate. Bone dry and shimmering with concentrated lime and grapefruit zest, stony minerality and a well-earned patina of lees and biscuit before melting into a lengthy finish. This wine has spent 3 years on the lees and was disgorged last August. We're talking benchmark Canadian bubble here, an ultra-premium one, and yes - from Nova Scotia. Drinking fantastically now, but will continue to gain complexity in the years to come.Tasted: 03 December 2015Tasted by: Prices: ON 50.00 LCBO BC 47.99 BCLS AB 50.00 Producer: Benjamin BridgeDistributors: Crush Imports
