Winemaker's Notes

BRUT SPARKLING, 375 mL

Our Brut is a classic blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir made in the traditional method. We bottle age this wine on the lees (yeast) for a minimum of one year and disgorge each bottle just before it leaves our hands, the practice of “RD” or recently disgorged; a sign of quality and attention to detail on the part of the producer. On the nose, it should remind you of lemon, lime and toasted bread. The creamy texture is punctuated by fine, persistent bubbles.

2019 ROSÉ, CUVÉE D’ANDRÉE

We dedicate this delightful Rosé to Madame Andrée Bosc – wife, mother and winery matriarch. We wanted to make a wine with as much joie de vivre as Madame. The vibrant pink certainly makes a statement. We were able to extract this colour by using only fully ripe grapes and by allowing an overnight cold soak to bleed out the colour from the skins. This is the old school way to make a crisp, dry Rosé. On the nose the aromas will remind you of fresh strawberries and cranberries. On the palate it is fresh and lively.

2017 CABERNET-MERLOT ‘OLD VINES’

This Cabernet-Merlot, is a classically styled blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot that has been aged for 15 months in French oak barrels. We use the time-honoured tradition of sourcing grapes from our various vineyards in order to combine the best flavour profiles of each site. The resulting wine is complex with flavours of dark chocolate, raspberry and cassis. It is certainly ready to drink now but has the structure to continue to develop in the bottle for 5-10 years.

Vineyard Manager's Notes

BRUT SPARKLING, 375 mL

The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for our Brut are among the first grapes we pick each year. We hand select bunches right in the vineyard looking for good ripeness while still retaining high acidity. We include grapes from all four of our vineyard sites in order to help maintain the consistency of aromas and flavours in the cuvée each year.

2019 ROSÉ, CUVÉE D’ANDRÉE

We take our Rosé very seriously. We believe that any wine we make must be made from the best grapes we can grow. This Rosé is no exception. We’ve chosen Pinot Noir to make this wine because we love the result. Notice the harvest date — we choose specific bunches in the vineyard that we believe will make the best Rosé. In each Pinot Noir block, bunches for sparkling wine are picked first, then Rosé then the rest are left to hang so they develop the maturity needed for our Estate Grown & Bottled and ‘Old Vines’ Pinot Noirs.

2017 CABERNET-MERLOT ‘OLD VINES’

The grapes for this wine were grown exclusively in our vineyards. We made this Cab-Merlot from hand-selected grapes from several of our vineyards focusing on only our oldest vineyard blocks. We selected the best bunches on each vine and removed the rest, we exposed the bunches on the east side of the rows in late August then the west side in September and we removed individual berries from the hanging bunches if they were not up to par. But the best wines are made in the vineyard so we want to give the winemaking team the best grapes we possibly can.

Bosc Family Food Pairings

BRUT SPARKLING, 375 mL

Good sparkling wine is one of those wines that will pair with just about anything; from popcorn to the most elegant canapé. Take a leaf of Belgian endive, add a tablespoon of C’est Bon Chévre and garnish with Grimo’s heartnuts and a drizzle of local clover honey.

2019 ROSÉ, CUVÉE D’ANDRÉE

For us, Rosé is the one wine that will pair with anything. If we’re having a tough time finding a match for a particular dish, we know we have our Rosé in our hip pocket. We have enjoyed it with beef satay, with a thick and juicy burger off the grill and even a summer field greens salad topped with a pan-seared sea scallop. When in doubt, Rosé!

2017 CABERNET-MERLOT ‘OLD VINES’

This is a perfect wine to have on hand to take to parties or to serve when friends drop by. It’s also versatile enough to pair well with tomato-based pastas like classic spaghetti and meatballs, grilled beef kabobs or braised short ribs.
