Description

In the glass, light gold with a subtle rose hue. On the nose, youthful notes of juicy peaches are complicated by aromas of sea breeze and maritime minerals. On the palate, the wine reveals clarity and focus with hints of ripe cranberries and a fleur de sel-like minerality. Asian spices and more mineral notes resonate throughout a deep, persistent finish.

With more than a decade’s experience pioneering Méthode Classique sparkling wine in the Gaspereau Valley, we are confident in calling the 2008 vintage a standout. While the long growing season was cool, the regulating effects of the Bay of Fundy allowed for moderate and, slowly acquired, grape ripeness. The resulting vintage is one of impressive freshness and remarkable phenolic maturity.

Even if it's not the first Bridge record, a milestone moment is here in this the last wine with hybrid contents (within this particular BB program). Though it houses 10 per cent Chardonnay and 10 per cent Pinot Noir, the remainder (80) is Seyval Blanc, L'Acadie Blanc and Vidal. At this Brut level it's so very bluesy and deceptive in consideration that it is a hybrid based wine, but at the sensory level, miles beyond and a whole other matter. The tempo is furious, the muscularity of tone like bebop in chorus. It has citrus fleshed, aromatically autolytic patisserie and caramelizing onion richness. It's a searing, raging scintillant, still throbbing and thriving. There is so much grapefruit here in crazy intensity. Work with it and the toast, the brioche and the baking spices come out, come clean and linger. Drink 2015-2023. Tasted July 2015.
