Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A fantastic traditional method sparkling wine from the Niagara Peninsula! Jackson-Triggs' Entourage Grand Reserve 2011 Sparkling Brut is a fine example of the high quality value priced vintage sparkling wine that Canada's producing and excelling at. A recent Gold Medal winner at the WineAlign 2015 National Wine Awards of Canada (the Nationals), the price does not reflect the high quality of this aged vintage bubbly. A light golden yellow colour, evidence of it's nearly 3 years spent on the lees to extract colour, body, flavour, and aromatics, the nose is full of sweet green apple, citrus, and lime peel. A fine mousse covers and cleanses the palate leaving a fresh apple and mineral finish that persists until the next sip. Terrific with rich dishes, seafood, celebrations and those memorable toasts, this wine shows just how versatile quality vintage sparkling wine can be. Enjoy 2015-2020. Tasted October 2015. 91 points.

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Ontario makes some excellent sparkling wines. This wine is made in the traditional Champagne Method and grapes - Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. This sparkler spent two years "en tirage" or "on yeasts" which gives that yummy bread note in the wine. Green apple, stone fruit, hint of floral, yeast. Delicate and persistent mousse. Tastes more expensive than it's $23 price tag. Feel confident serving it to your entourage New Years Eve. Cheers!
Tasted: December 2014

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
