Benajmin Bridge Méthode Classique
This latest release of the NV Brut marks a big change, and improvement, from the previous bottling. It has moved to a clearly more complex, smoky, autolytic (toasty) style, and it's terrific. It contains reserve wines (chardonnay and pinot noir) up to 15 years old, going back to the inaugural 2002 vintage from Benjamin Bridge, alongside more youthful base wines from L'Acadie, Seyval and Vidal with an average of three years on lees overall. Depth and especially complexity, as well as length on the palate, are excellent, while the flavour profile is decidedly steely, flinty and smoky, dried spearmint, ginger, and lime-tinged, far more mineral than fruity and still remarkably fresh. I love the balance, the essentially bone dry nature with sharp but not sour acids, the transparent and sinewy texture, and the genuine concentration of flavour. Considering the attractive price, the impressive quality, and the volume available, this wine has the potential to put Nova Scotia sparkling firmly on the national and even world map. Score - 90.
