Blomidon Grande Réserve Extra Brut 2008

Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, CanadaThis Grande Réserve is entirely chardonnay, from their Annapolis estate. It spent 10+ years sur lattes prior disgorge in February 2022, with 4 g/L. It's certainly a long term project, reflective in the premium pricing. Pouring a deep lemon hue, this opens with ample bread dough and yeast, with baked apple and pear, lined with oxidative notes. The mousse dissipates very quickly, leaving a tight cider apple note on the buzzing finish. Certainly a mature offering, and a wine for those whose palates are appreciative.Tasted: 28 February 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
