Chateau Des Charmes Brut Methode Traditionelle, Niagara-On-The-Lake
Made in the “Traditional Method,” the coy term producers have to use because they can’t say it’s made the same way as champagne, this delivers all the freshness you need when you’re looking for a crisp sparkler to wake up your taste buds before dinner. Then take it to the table and enjoy it with grilled shrimps. The flavours are nicely complex, the balance is right, the mousse is friendly. Score: 89 (Rod Phillips, WineAlign.com, Apr 2013)
