Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aged en tirage for three years, this beautiful, Brut boasts hints of toast, and zest, with a tight mineral structure. On the palate, a lasting, delicate and creamy mousse is supported by a round body and crisp, prolonged finish.
Production Notes
Handpicked from our estate vineyard , this blend of Chardonnay (49%), Pinot Noir (47%) and Pinot Meunier (4%) was whole-bunch pressed, clarified and fermented in individual varietal batches. The base blend was carefully orchestrated to create a balanced and elegant wine. Secondary fermentation occurred in bottle with carefully selected yeast, followed by aging on lees ('sur lie') for 2.5 years. This period allowed for the development of a fuller wine with incredible complexity, to further enhance the palate.
Winemaker Notes
Aged en tirage for 2.5 years, this beautiful Brut boasts hints of red fruit, toast, red apples, honey comb and citrus zest, with a tight mineral structure and fine balance. On the palate, a lingering full and creamy mousse is supported by round body and a crisp, prolonged finish. Look for notes of pastry crust, apples and marmalade.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with toasted ham and cheese sandwich, oysters, asparagus and gruyere tart.

Jackson-Triggs' 2016 Entourage Grand Reserve Brut - A very impressive high quality sparking wine from this well known Niagara-on-the-Lake winery. At $29.95, Jackson-Triggs' Entourage Grand Reserve Brut has become a Sommelier favourite with each vintage given its consistent quality yet at a fraction of the price sparkling wines of this caliber often command. The 2016 vintage is the finest I recall tasting - every component of this wine is working in beautiful harmony, from its creamy mousse to the rich stone fruit and marzipan pasty notes, culminating with a long refreshing finish as the endless stream of micro bubbles persists. Enjoy 2020-2025. Tasted June 2020. Highly recommended! 93 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
