92 Pts – Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast, December 12, 2018

“Immerse in the comforting, concentrated caramel aroma. The soft palate opens sweet with sarsaparilla, cocoa and vanilla, but dries into cigar wrapper and chamomile. The finish is laced with nutmeg, cardamom, and cayenne spice. Average age of blend is 18 years old, aged in Gascony black oak barrels.

Pierre Sparr Pinot Gris Grande Réserve 2017

Pierre Sparr Pinot Gris Grande Réserve 2017 
LCBO #983395  $18.95

Yellow gold colour.  Reveals aromas of fruits, apricots, peach and a complex nose.  With some air, notes of juicy apricots follow accompanied by mineral notes.  In the mouth, it is soft with a delicate sweetness-acid-relation, a fancy mineralality and a firm racy body.  This drinking pleasure is crowned by a little bit of smoky-spicy aftertaste - a wine for lovers of a clear smooth Pinot Gris with charm.

Food pairing

Fish in sauce.  Terrines, cold or warm patés.  Poultry, turkey and white meat.  Exotic and spicy dishes.  Asian style white meat, sweet-and-sour.  Pinot Gris is also a delicious aperitif wine.

88 Pts – Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast, August 1, 2019

“The earthy smell of dandelion blossom on the nose of this wine leads onto a palate of ripe pear juiciness. It offers freshness and a rounded lightness, with a just-off-dry finish.”
