|Valérie Dufour Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
This winery from Lombardie is well-knowned for his beautifully made Franciacorta. Their still white wine is pretty good too. I bought it when I read a review in the SAQ Cellier that said this wine was like a baby Chassagne-Montrachet. Well, for about 28 $ this was worth trying. And I was not disappointed. Althought I would say this wine is pretty young and doesn't have the structure to last for 7-10 years like the Chassagne-Montrachet, the Curtefranca is a top of the line wine with depth and character. I had it with a lobster risotto and it was simply perfect. You will have to be quick to get it. I bought 6 bottles and I am down to 2 that I hid in the cellar in the hopes that I will forget about them (unlikely), but check-out the stocks online for the next vintage, because I am sure the SAQ will carry it again. It is a specialty product, so that means it is not in the regular section and only the SAQ Selection get those products. There is still 8 bottles at the SAQ in Gatineau (on Maloney) if you live in the Ottawa region and are really curious.
