Tasting Notes

In the glass, the wine presents a beautiful light gold colour with a fine persistent mousse. Complex aromas of white mint, key lime, and wet stones abound. The palate displays an array of bright citrus fruit and endless mineral undertones. This exquisite wine owes its brilliance to an extremely rare combination of richness and brightness, and a superb balance of concentration and elegance.

The 2004 Benjamin Bridge Blanc de Blancs is the finest, rarest and last sparkling from the acclaimed ’04 vintage. Meticulously crafted from some of the earliest Chardonnay grown in Nova Scotia, only 200 bottles of this exceptional wine exist. A BB Club exclusive release.
