92 Pts – James Suckling, March 27, 2019

Pierre Sparr Pinot Gris Grand Cru Mambourg 2016
– $25.95, LCBO# 686451

Shining golden yellow gleaming. Elegant and fruity. At the nose, this Pinot Gris reveals aromas of mature quinces, fruit jelly and hazelnuts. On the palate, this wine presents a straight structure, an attractive dynamism, ample and aromatic. Well-balanced wine with a very present finale. Long lasting aromas.

Food Pairing: Duck crisp on grilled pineapple, Munster cheese, scallop shell with curry sauce, fowl tureen on Cumberland sauce, Foie gras with truffles.

92 Pts – Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast, November 1, 2018

“A hint of Mirabelle plum plays on the nose before becoming fully fledged on the medium-sweet palate. This flows with a stone fruit flavor that is always tempered by lemon freshness. It’s smooth, rounded and fruit-driven, with a medium-sweet finish.”


Chateau de Nages Vieilles Vignes Organic Red 2017 – $19.95
– LCBO #40964

Brilliant garnet colour. Lavish, complex array of ripe red berries (raspberry, cherry), pepper, oriental spices and aromatic herbs. Rich and balanced taste with a fine tannic grain, it reveals spices, licorice and minerality in a long elegant finish.

91 Pts – Joe Czerwinski,, October 31, 2019

“The 2017 Costieres de Nimes Vieilles Vignes is a screaming value, offering a terrific combination of spicy, herbal notes and juicy, mouthwatering fruit. Cherries and raspberries form the core, accented by bay leaf and thyme, in this blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% Carignan. The Syrah is aged in older barrels, while the rest aged in concrete, resulting in a wine that finishes silky and vibrant”


Chateau Vincens Prestige AOC Cahors 2016 – $19.95
– LCBO #272427

From dark red, to red-blue shaded. Juicy mulberry, dark plum and ripe cherry flavor. Note of vanilla and spices. This wine is ripe with black and red berry fruits, packed with both acidity and dry tannins. It is developing into a generous and full-bodied wine.

Food Pairing: Roast duck and lamb.

91 Pts – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, November 1, 2019

“This is a powerful, wood-aged wine. With smoky, ripe black-fruit flavors, it has density as well as acidity. The bitter edge suggests some extra extraction, but with time the wine will integrate well. Drink from 2021.”


Domaine de Rotisson Les Cheres Bourgogne Blanc 2018 – $20.95
– LCBO #424903

Golden yellow colour. Fresh, buttery nose with sweet almond, hazelnut and lime. Fluid and mineral, balanced and powerful, finishing with a final touch of vivacity.

Food Pairing: Poultry in cream, or fish with sauce. Try it with a dry goat’s cheese for a real treat.
