Now you can find those 3 wonderful wines on their Shop On Line on or you can go on the LCBO’s website

Please, let us remind you some of their great qualities :

Pinot Gris 2002 « Reserve Personnelle »

The very important thing is that we produce this Pinot Gris only when the vintage permits it.
Bottled in the spring following the harvest, it is incredibly fresh and fruity. The grapes come from the sloap located in Grand Cru Osterberg where we planted Pinot Gris vines about 20 years ago.
Grilled or marinated fishes, noble fishes, Foie Gras or desserts, this Pinot Gris will pair magically with rich and spiced cuisines.

Bruce Sanderson’s score: 91 points (Wine Spectator)

Pinot Gris 2000 « Vendanges Tardives »

Another Pinot Gris, in the sweet style, from 2000.
« Vendanges Tardives » are also not produced every year, especially for Pinot Gris, which is the most fragile grape from Alsace. We produce Pinot Gris « Vendanges Tardives » when we get « botritis cinerea » on the Osterberg grapes, because thanks to Noble Rot, the natural sugar and acidity levels get higher.
This Pinot Gris is of course perfect now with Foie Gras and desserts, but also with veal or  chicken with a rich sauce, mushrooms, or with a spicy asiatic cuisine  or a Canard Laqué.

Bruce Sanderson’s score: 91 points (Wine Spectator)

Gewurztraminer 2000 « Vendanges Tardives »

In 2000, the Gewurztraminer grapes were extremely ripe due to small quantity and overipening. The concentration of natural sugar and acidity were great ! The potential alcohol was over 16%.
This Gewurztraminer will pair very graciously with Foie Gras and with every dessert you would like to enjoy with. Strong cheeses can also be a good alternative.
It is really a pleasure wine to drink now or to keep for a few years.

Bruce Sanderson: 94 points (Wine Spectator)
Steve Tanzer: 91 points (The International Wine Cellar)
Robert Parker: 93 points (The Wine Advocate)

And now, just enjoy !
