Michael (90): Really barrel forward presentation in the Triomphe ’14, more so than expected but with such levels of fruit, reduction and texture the relationship will not suffer. Lemon butter and thyme flowers with a slight popping corn elevation. It’s a bit malo-oak-lees weighted at this time but with 12-18 months of sun-setting integration the settling will lead to three years of terrific Ontario Chardonnay pleasure. Good winemaking. Just be patient. Drink 2017-2021. Tasted February 2016.
