New NPW at the LCBO

Nicholas Pearce wines releases new wines to the LCBO Vintages and Classics programs…

2016 VILLA SYMPOSIA L’EQUILIBRE AOC PEZENAS-LANGEUDOC
$17.95 | VINTAGES#: 298620   |   750 mL bottle
 | 90pts Robert Parker

​​A destemmed blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan, the medium-bodied 2016 Pezenas L’Equilibre does indeed show a fine sense of balance. Cherry and garrigue notes come together in a moderately concentrated, tart wine with a dusty, authentic feel. Not too ripe or polished, just delicious and true to its terroir. Drink it over the next several years. Drink date: 2018-2021. Score – 90. (Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com, Sept. 25, 2018)

​​2014 DOMAINE BERTHOUMIEU CHARLES DE BATZ MADIRAN AOP
$23.95 
| VINTAGES#: 12979 | 750 mL bottle
 | 93pts Wine Enthusiast

​​This is a bold, structured and firm wine, full of dark tannins and ripe fruit. It has power and a dark presence that comes from the dense texture and the dry core that is still a powerful element in the wine. That means that the wine needs to age further. Drink from 2021. Score – 93. (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, June 1, 2018)

2018 MAISON VALDESAY BOURGOGNE PINOT NOIR
$20.95 
| VINTAGES#: 12176 | 750 mL bottle

Impressive ripe fruit, with a savoury herbal tone that adds considerable depth and complexity. A pure mineral note emerges on the finish. This is fresh, vibrant and made for food. Pair it with roast lamb. (Vintages panel, April 2019)

2016 TRISAETUM COAST RANGE ESTATE PINOT NOIR WILLAMETTE VALLEY AVA $65.00 
| VINTAGES#: 546374 | 750 mL bottle | 
94pts Wine Spectator, 93pts Vinous

Impressively built and expressive, with vibrant rose petal, black cherry and orange peel flavors that take on richness and depth toward polished tannins. Best after 2025. Score – 94. (Tim Fish, winespectator.com, Oct. 31, 2018)
 An expansive bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, cherry pit, mocha, potpourri and exotic spices. Takes a brighter turn with air and offers juicy black raspberry and cherry cola flavors, along with suggestions of spicecake and candied flowers. Plush and seamless in texture, finishing with impressive energy, resonating spiciness, and subtle framing.

2015 DOMAINE MURÉ CLOS ST LANDELIN GRAND CRU RIESLING
$47.00 | VINTAGES#: 75929 | 750 mL bottle | 
97pts Wine Enthusiast

The heady aromatic scent of fresh tangerine peel takes turns with the refreshing perfume of green Seville oranges. The palate takes these enticing aromas and bundles them into one arrow-like force of concentrated freshness. This is a high-wire act of piercing brightness and layered citrus aroma. This is like a self-generating well of freshness that convinces with its luminosity, raciness and rapier-like purity of citrus flavors. Everything is heightened: Fruit, dryness, freshness and vibrant verve. It is tempting but it would be a shame to drink this now. Keep this genie in its bottle for a while longer, if only to see what fascinating direction it takes. This is wondrous. Drink 2022-2037. Score – 97. (Anne Krebiehl, MW, Wine Enthusiast, Dec. 1, 2017)

​2015 MAISON ROCHE DE BELLENE PULIGNY-MONTRACHET LES FOLATIÈRES 1ER CRU
$145.00 
| VINTAGES#: 12507 | 750 mL bottle | 
91pts Allan Meadows, Burghound

​​A whiff of petrol can be found on the pretty and ever-so-mildly exotic aromas of both white and yellow orchard fruit that includes hints of wood and white flowers. I like the richness allied with verve and detail of the medium weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the delicious, vibrant and agreeably dry finale. While this is clearly a child of its vintage, it’s more vibrant than many 2015s and worth a look. Drink: 2022+. Outstanding. Score – 91. (Allen Meadows, burghound.com, June 15, 2018)
