Reviews and Ratings

Simon Chen rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

what a great sparkling wine from BC Canada. It's 100% chardonnay but it's a bit sweet for a typical blanc de blanc. Brioche bread, citrus on the nose. fine bubbles, rich, and complex on the palate. Definitely a champagne quality sparkling wine from BC for $35
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Enticing aromas of toasted baguette and green apple follow through to a lasting apple finish. Delicate and persistent bubbles. Made of 100% Chardonnay, the fruitiness is still present. A true "bubble entendre"!
Perfect for ant celebration!
Tasted Sept 2018.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Exceptional. Fine bubbles, traditional method. Great complexity, big on minerality, toasted bread, crisp apple. Tasted NV in Sept 2018. 92 points
Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Aromas of brioche and honey. Flavours of lemon and yellow delicious apple and some fruitiness that shines through from it being 100% chardonnay grapes.

Very well balanced acidity that you could pair with brie cheese but, given its name, would pair well with a 6 loads of laundry and Netflix on a Saturday night while you reminisce about when you used to do more exciting things like getting dressed up and leaving this house. At this price point, yes you deserve to spoil yourself on a $35 bottle of sparkling wine after a tough week. Go for it!

Tasted September 16, 2018.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An awesome sparkling chard from Dirty Laundry Vineyard. Done in the classic method with stoney minerals, baked brioche, and pomelo fruit citrus. Flavours reveal yellow apples, grapefruit and fresh roasted salted crostini on the tongue. Minerality is strong with awesomely dry vibrant acidity. Pair with canapes, dry roasted nuts and good company. 91 points - team tasting September 16, 2018
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

100% Chardonnay and made in the traditional method - this is a lovely bubbly from the Okanagan in BC. Aromas typical of a traditional method sparkling; brioche; apple and lemon. Crisp and dry (2 g/l sugar) with a long finish. My favourite pairing with a nice sparkling is lighted salted potato chips - which would work quite nicely here. Tasted September 16/2018 @DirtyLaundryVin
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Delicious sparkling from Dirty Laundry. 36 months of sur lie aging on this beauty from the Okanagan.
Deep yellow.
Beautiful layered brioche and glazed plum and apricot. It is generous and satisfying.
Flavours of yellow plum, binned apple, salted caramel.
Pair it with literally anything. Sparkling is great for versatile pairings. When it is delicious sparkling, like this, it tends to outshine the food.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lovely! Lots of lemon, green apple, yeast, brioche, and a tiny hint of caramel. Bright, persistent bubble, and zesty lemon-lime on the palate with those toasty notes. Enjoy on its own or with oysters.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A Methode Classique Brut Chardonnay from BC V.Q.A. Okanagan Valley. Notes of brioche, vanilla, lime and a touch of honey, with lovely fine mousse. Perfect for toasting.
