Domaine Sébastien Magnien, Vieilles Vignes, Hautes Côtes De Beaune 2017
This old-vine Burgundy calls for wine tasting on a Vintage Boat on a beautiful summer day in Ontario!
This Pinot Noir is made from the fruit of a single vineyard (La Dalignère); is richer and more powerful than Sebastien’s other Hautes Côtes wines. 100 % Pinot Noir, 55 years old vines planted by Sebastien’s grandfather. I’m a fan!
Bright ruby colour, The nose has a combination of floral and red berry notes with an engaging earthy-spicy character. It has a wonderful concentration and depth of blackberry fruit on the palate, refined tannins, through to a long finish. Burgundian elegance.

Galleon Wines recently launched its Ontario online collection of fine wines. Galleon seeks out artisans who create exceptional wines.
This nervy wine comes from Bué, one of the top villages of Sancerre, which is grown in limestone-clay soil and reflects the unique terroir of the region.
Powerful nose with lots of aromatic qualities developing over a period of time. Tangy with mineral texture, and offering lime flavors, displaying a surprising suppleness and roundness. Very long on the palate.
This wine makes an excellent aperitif and pairs beautifully with oily seafood dishes and cheeses.
