Intact.

The 2006 Tête de Cuvée or Reserve Galpin Peak Pinot Noir from Bouchard Finlayson fresh in the memory (see previous post), how would the standard label compare?

Half a percentage lower in alcohol for one thing. More fruit forward, more medium bodied. Red cherry flavoure, tangy acidity, fine tannins. Cleaner and fresher than the Tête de Cuvée but by the same token not as complex. What to privilege – the purity of the standard label or the more multifaceted nature of the Tête de Cuvée? Both have their merits…

Score: 86/100.
