Benjamin Bridge Brut Méthode Classique 2013

Gaspereau Valley, Nova Scotia, CanadaThe 2013 Brut, newly released, is a blend of 71 chardonnay and 29 pinot noir, spent four years on the lees, and was disgorged in June 2018 with a dosage of 8 g/l. Unlike the 2012, this removes meunier and ups the chardy quotient. White florals with kisses of young violets, white cherry, pithy white grapefruit, green apple rides an upright brisk palate. There's a hum of acidity that lends a vibrato to this light / medium bodied wine, one that is nimble in the mouth at 11.5 degrees, but feels generously cushioned on the palate. The finish grips with a chalky drying rasp and lime pith that lingers on the palate and invites another glass. Very impressive.Tasted: 08 December 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 50.00 LCBO NS 44.50 winery direct AB 50.00 Producer: Benjamin BridgeDistributors: Crush Imports
