Pommery is closely associated with Champagne; a few years ago, Pommery expanded to the USA under “Louis Pommery”, using California grapes to make a new world style sparkling wine.
After eight years of R & D, Cellar Director, and oenological DevelopmentManager Thierry Gasco refined a revolutionary method to craft wine with encapsulated yeast, which eliminates all deposits from the bottle, gives the wine an unprecedented degree of clarity and brilliance.
Using the methode champenoise principle this wine is made with 96% chardonnay and 4% pinot noir grapes.
Louis Pommery is an ode to the maison’s iconic style, evoking vivacity, freshness and finesse.
Beautiful straw yellow colour with a lively effervescence; soft aromas of toasted baguette, fresh flowers with notes of green apples which flow through to the palate; slight citrusy note; the finish is long and toasty.
A wonderful and well-priced offering.

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.

With rosé sales surging during lockdown, Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana has joined the party, and teamed up with Donnafugata by designing a label for a new Sicilian rosé – Dolce & Gabbana Rosé 2019.
Donnafugata Dolce & Gabbana Rosa 2019 is a Provençal-style pale pink made from a blend of native Sicilian grapes Nerello Mascalese and Nocera grown on the northern slopes of Mount Etna and on the hills of Contessa Entellina, near Palermo.
Tasting notes include notes of jasmine, wild strawberry, peach and bergamot, with the Nerello Mascalese adding a mineral component and the Nocera bringing red and stone fruit to the blend.
The bottle’s geometrically patterned blue, red, white and pink label, designed by Dolce & Gabbana, is inspired by the ornate detailing of traditional carts native to Sicily.
“We are Italian, we love to eat and drink a good wine, like Rosa, born from our collaboration with Donnafugata. For us it is like tasting the smells of our land, seeing it’s colours and feeling its atmosphere,” the fashion design duo said.
The wine goes on sale via the Dolce & Gabbana website June – just in time for summer.
This isn’t the first time Dolce & Gabbana have moved their brand beyond clothing. They have put their hands to everything from pasta tins for Pastificio di Martino to juicers, toasters and kettles in a lucrative collaboration with Smeg.
