WineScores' Review

Juicy, purity, fresh.
Corcelettes is a family run boutique winery of 5500 cases per year; it’s situated on 150-acres of the Similkameen Valley's rugged Upper Bench in Keremeos. The first vintage was in 2011 and since, Charlie and Jesce Baessler have made the estate a destination winery known for warm welcomes and elegant region-reflective wines.
New to the portfolio, the Chardy was barrel fermented in 25% new oak and saw daily lees stirring for sixteen weeks wile going through a full malolactic ferment.
It has lovely freshness on the nose; dried pineapple and Meyer lemons, creamed corn, caramel, juicy yellow apples and vanilla aromas lead to lovely purity in the mouth. It has a juicy entry and slick texture, the finish trails oak spice and vanilla flavours.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
