ACWC 2017 - Day 3 wines

15 Dec 2018

Crouzeau

 

(June 8, 2017) ... I always take a number of bottles to the judging of the All Canadian Wine Championships, and usually stuff that is non-Canadian, just for a change of pace. Today's  offering were French and South African: 

St Gervais 2007 La Reserve du Crouzau - France ... Chocolate, blackberry, cassis, black cherry, still lively and full of flavour,

Good Hope Pinot NoirWinery or Good Hope 2009 Pinot Noir - South Africa ... I am sure people do not think of South Africa for Pinot, but I remember this one being really good in it's youth; it started off slow but then it really pops with acidity and fruit at its apex, about 30-60 minutes after opening.
