Bernard-Massard Brut Cuvée de l’Écusson

LCBO#: 970970
Price: $19.95
Vintages
Made in: Luxembourg
By: Bernard-Massard S.A.

A Luxembourg Sparkling with a creamier head than most. Yeasty nose with mostly apples. Dry enough mouthfeel, but mostly crisp. Again, apples and yeast in the taste, all on the mild side. Light yeast lingers. Hints of bananas. Nothing really offensive, unless you prefer hardly no yeast. Easy to drink overall and presentable. Still, the Andrea Biasiotto Extra Dry Prosecco we just had a week ago, was way better and less expensive, all in the Vintages.

Forward Pinot Grigio Riesling

LCBO#: 427344
Price: $11.45
Made in: Ontario, Canada
By: Pelee Island Vineyard Inc.
Year: 2015

This Canadian blend of Pinot Grigio and Riesling gives out pear notes in the nose at first. Citrus does eventually appear with some sour hints and decent fruity sweetness. The mouthfeel has a nice dryness with the citrus flavours. A little too much yeast lingers in the end, but overall – this is quite drinkable for the price.

Jackson-Triggs Pinot Grigio

jt-pinotLCBO#: 621110
Price: $10.95
Made in: Ontario, Canada
By: Jackson-Triggs Winery
Varietal: Pinot Grigio

Might be known as Unity Pinot Grigio and this one we have has no dates (year) on it. Written blended from international and Canadian wines. Light pear aromas and medium-light body. The mild pear is also in the taste with notes of lime creating some very light sourness in the finish. Alcohol is also felt in the aftertaste. A pretty decent affordable fruity white wine, but a tad too mild and there is better for the price from other Southern American countries.
