Pizza tarte flambée

“Tarte flambée” style pizza

Bright yellow gold color. Salty nose with candied lemon, pears, orchard fruits with enjoyable toasty notes coming from the barrel ageing. Same profile on the palate, the wine is dense with a round mouth feel, explodes on the finish where the wine is even more bold and persistant. Yes the oak is still there, but it pairs well with the wine’s structure and bring in roundness while not hidding its acidity or salinity. This wine was a perfect match to a “tarte flambée” style pizza. Excellent+ (92)

Made of chardonnay. Bottled after have spent 10 months in oak barrels. Alcohol level of 13%

There is still few bottles of this wine on 2015 vintage available in some SAQ stores for 82,25$ (Code SAQ :12280775)
