Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Jackson-Triggs' 2016 Entourage Grand Reserve Brut - A very impressive high quality sparkling wine from this well known Niagara-on-the-Lake winery. At $29.95, Jackson-Triggs' Entourage Grand Reserve Brut has become a Sommelier favourite with each vintage given its consistent quality yet at a fraction of the price sparkling wines of this caliber often command. The 2016 vintage is the finest I recall tasting - every component of this wine is working in beautiful harmony, from its creamy mousse to the rich stone fruit and marzipan pasty notes, culminating with a long refreshing finish as the endless stream of micro bubbles persists. Enjoy 2020-2025. Tasted June 2020. Highly recommended! 93 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lovely sparkling made from 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. Aromas of green apple, lemon zest, and ripe pear with hints of brioche and almond. Light on the palate, with persistent, zesty bubbles and vibrant mouthwatering acidity. Tangy citrus notes and a yeasty bread note carry through on a long finish. Enjoy with any fried foods or to accompany and balance any rich seafood.
Jackson-Triggs Entourage Grand Reserve Brut 2016 is produced in the Traditional Method as in the making of Champagne. This is a wonderfully zesty, toasty and vibrant bubbly from the Niagara Peninsula wine region. Bright apple, lemon curd, leesy, toasty with a persistent mousse. The wine spent 2 years on the lees to add complexity and weight to the wine. Chill and pair it with fresh-steamed lobster, crab, shrimp, oysters and grilled calamari seafood palate. A very impressive high quality sparkling wine from this well known Niagara-on-the-Lake winery. - Community Wine Reviews
