A brilliant medium lemon hue with a very fine and steady bead. The nose is youthful and fresh with notes of wet stone, green apple, fresh butter, bread dough and warm toast. On the palate, the mousse is remarkably rich, fine and mouth-filling. The acid is vibrant and bright throughout and the finish long with stone, cream and toast notes dominating. An excellent and complex wine ideal for drinking now well chilled (6oC). Classic matches include poached Turbot with cream and button mushrooms, Dover sole à la meunière, smoked salmon, fresh oysters in the half shell, caviar with buckwheat blinis and crème fraiche and double and triple cream bloomy rind cheeses.

Considering the increased warmth of the vintage I would have expected the 2007 Grande Cuvée to turn about face from the 2006, but it's striking similarity to the older sibling is astonishing. Clarity of mind must have struck a chord in the grower-winemaker symbiosis. The picking must have been prudent and just in the nick of time. Stylistically speaking, the oxidative lean and appetence with English curve is consistent with '06, as is the creamy texture and outright tuber vigour and backbone. Starch of a slow-simmered chalk breathes limestone and then ginger, melted into iron oxide, makes for yet another fully anticipated and omnipresent soil-driven 13th Street gait. Here Blanc de Noirs walks alone in Ontario and I can't see any immediate ageing, reason, or possibility of change, happening anytime soon. Drink 2015-2024. Tasted September 2015.
