Taste the Benjamin Bridge sparklings that stunned the experts
Nova Scotia’s Gaspereau Valley, home to Benjamin Bridge, is one of the rare grape-growing regions with a growing season remarkably similar to Champagne, France. The valley’s geography and cool climate foster extremely low natural cropping levels — leading to a precious, expensive yield of grapes with rich flavours, texture, and length.
It is not only terroir that puts these wines at the level of the French prestige cuvées. Under the expert guidance of winemakers Peter J. Gamble, Jean-Benoit Deslauriers and the late Raphaël Brisbois, Benjamin Bridge sparklings are made in the laborious and time-consuming Méthode Classique, using the classic Champagne grape varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The precious berries are hand-picked in small baskets, delicately pressed, and finally bottled for extended aging on their lees.
