Pearl Morissette, Cuvée Dix-Neuvième Chardonnay
Origin: Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara, Ontario, Canada
Producer's Notes: a wine that even in the youth of its youths shines with poise and class. The bouquet is fleshy, but understated.The palate is rich in supple orchard fruit and has equal amounts of translucency, gentleness and arresting precision. The flavours follow through on the compact and persistent finish, which also speaks of an outstandingly long life ahead. Can a wine be vivid and exuberant, yet a textbook example of restraint and studiousness? Here's the answer.
