Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

What better sparkling wine to watch the new tv series "Lucifer" than this Angels Gate "Archangel" Brut! Invited some friends over for a viewing and we popped open this lovely sparkling Chardonnay from Niagara. I have to say - it was "wickedly good". Okay - enough of the puns. Made in the traditional method this is a clean, crisp bubbly with aromas of lemon, green apple and brioche. While off-dry with almost 10 grams of sugar it comes across as dry with some mouth-watering acidity to balance. We paired it with a pear/brie bread and boursin cheese. This is a definite "buy again" for me! Tasted October 24/2016
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Easy drinking, easy going, crisp and refreshing bubbly. Citrus and apple dominate the flavours leaving a long tangy tart finish on the palate. A terrific bubbly to pair with freshly sucked oysters. Tasted March 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

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.
