Blue Mountain Blanc de Blancs R.D. Méthode Traditionelle 2010

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the 2010 vintage, this chardonnay rested 5.5 years on lees and was disgorged in August 2016. This bottle then spent another year in bottle before release, so this wine (according to Treve maths) spent near three years in the bottle, post its disgorgement. Tight racy green apple, crystalline lemon, mandarin pith on a bed of earthy, anise-scented lees. The frame runs long to a snappy finish. Elegant and precise and delicious now upon release, and the winery has done all the ageing work for us. One of Canada's best bubbles.Tasted: 26 May 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 39.90 winery direct, private retail, restaurants AB 49.95 private wine shops Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
