Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Toasty pastry notes on the nose. There is a touch of anise amid the lively mousse on the palate. Light and lively and slightly racy. Try it with light cheeses. Tasted June 2019.
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A clean and pure bubbly with varietal characteristics of apple and lemon accented by mild yeast and brioche. Extra dry and crisp sporting racy acidity. Autolysis picks up more on the palate in terms of flavour concentration, impact, and texture, without hiding the crisp fruit notes. Very fresh, pair this sparkler with seared white fish, raw shellfish, or fried vegetable dishes.
From Niagara-On-The-Lake wine region, Château des Charmes 2015 Blanc De Blancs is made in the traditional method, a vintage bubble produced solely from estate-grown Chardonnay wine grapes. Bright, crisp and dry, the mousse fairly dances across the palate with creamy red apple, nutty, leesy and vanilla flavour on the palate. So easy to enjoy on its own, or pair with seafood canapes. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
