The Liquor store gods continue to smile on us with the LCBO Vintages Release of March 16, 2019. Some exceptional value wines in many categories – sweet wine, Ports, Southern France. We are talking mid-90 scores for under $30 in many cases.
LCBO’s Vintages Release of Feb 2, 2019 is another opportunity to stock up on good value wines, including a Portuguese wine for $13.95 that ranked # 50 in the 2016 Wine Spectator Top 100! Wine Enthusiast’s #55 of Top 100 2018 is also on offer at $16.95.
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.
