Calvet Pinot Blanc 2018

I get a lot of my content from wine tastings that of course in todays COVID times are suspended. As an example I would get 30+ wines tasted in an evening. Even if I only wrote up the stars of the night I would get 5-10 wines out of an event. I’m sure you’ve noticed the update rate has slowed. Sorry about that. I will continue to do my best to share as much as I can …

Pale in color with a nice minerally, citrus not. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice citrus notes that match the nose, lime/lemon and the like. With food it’s milder, without food a little more descript. I served it with seafood fettucine alfredo and it was a little hard pressed to rise above it. On it’s own it’s got some nice mouth grip where the nice acidity dances on the tongue. I would give it an 88-. For the price not a bad deal, just pair it with something not quite as lively. Nice and dry. from the LCBO web site: Check stock

Calvet Pinot Blanc 2018 from LCBO

The Calvet Pinot Blanc 2018 is fermented in stainless steel, preserving the delicate floral and fruit tones. It shows lifted citrus notes, with excellent freshness and a fine minerality. It’s a good food wine that will be great with fish or salads but will also shine as a sipper paired with soft cheeses. (Vintages panel, Nov. 2019)
