Blue Mountain Reserve Brut R.D. Méthode Traditionelle 2008

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis 50/50 blend of 2008 pinot noir and chardonnay was disgorged in August 2015, after 6.5 years on the lees and an additional year in the bottle. Impressive numbers, but this exceptional wine starts in the vineyard, with Okanagan Falls estate fruit whole cluster pressed, and fermented separately in stainless before blending. Complex and concentrated with light dough, nuts and piercing lemon peel. A very complete palate will only get better with bottle development. Great verve and drive throughout to the vibrating finish. One for drinking now, or for the cellar.Tasted: 28 November 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
