Wine Picks LCBO Vintages Release Aug 4, 2018

The Aug 4, 2018 LCBO Vintages Release  is padded with 90+ scoring wines under $25. There are a number of high scoring good value Chardonnays, including a Burgundian Chardonnay hailing from very close to Pouilly- Fuissé and one from Leaning Post Wines who just were awarded a Platinum medal for one of their Chardonnays by the National Wine Awards of Canada.

Leaning Post was one of 3 Ontario wineries to win National Wine Awards Canada Platinum in the Chardonnay category  for their Leaning Post Chardonnay Wismer Foxcroft Vineyard 2015.  So –  not the Platinum winner on offer but I am curious to try the Leaning Post The Fifty Chardonnay 2015.

lcbo-nov-11-2017-release

You can tell the holiday season is approaching by the price tags in the Vintage release.  The French features in this release easily run $50 + topping out at $257.95 for a Super Tuscan. Because of the emphasis on richest of French, American and Italian wines, some of the best values in my target range (under $35.00) are Canadian!
