Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - 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
