One of the best value for dollar sparklings in the LCBO. Lip smacking delicious and the mousse (bubbles) stays for quite a while unlike others in this price range.

A consistent and solid player like this makes sparkling wine an everyday fun drink, not just a celebration tipple.

This refreshing bottle of bubbly is very tart on the palate with some citrus fruitiness, a little apple and ginger, lots of yeasty, biscuity aromas, and a slightly bitter, mouthwatering finish. Good to get your appetite working.

Crisp, light, and refreshing. I found my bottle a bit under carbonated for the style. I enjoyed it, but there are better sparkling wines for the price.
