The astonishing sparkling wine revolution in Canada

winesinniagara.com [cached]

The grapes we are looking at today won't be in your flute for another seven years "at least," says Groux.
Groux is in that most unique position with Niagara sparkling wines: He not only helped pioneer the modern era of sparkling wines in Ontario as the winemaker at Trius (then called Hillebrand) in 1988 when he knew of only one other traditionally-made sparkler being made (Chateau des Charmes), but he is also part of the Second Coming of Ontario sparkling winemakers, in fact, Canadian winemakers, re-energizing the craft of sparkling wines - and in particular, traditionally made, or Methode Champenoise, made famous in the vineyards of Champagne, France, in the early 1600s. Groux riddled everything by hand, built a specially designed underground cellar for the wines and the sparkling program grew quickly to 10,000 bottles. To that end, 26 Ontario winemakers (including Groux) and two scientists (including Kemp) travelled to Champagne this past summer on a technical and educational journey to learn from winemakers there exactly how they achieve greatness with their bubbles. It's a key to making quality traditionally-made sparking that is not lost on J.L. Groux: "I'm doing everything the opposite of all my other wines."

Bachelder (above, top) shares similar traits to that of J.L. Groux (above), also a master blender as the long-time winemaker at Stratus Vineyards.
Stratus White 2012 ($44, 92 points) - The white assemblage from winemaker J.L. Groux is a blend of 43% Chardonnay, 42% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon. The Chardonnay was picked early, a departure for Stratus, and the wine was aged for 624 days in French oak, 28% of it new.
