Imagine picking up a decent French white for around $20? Even though Ontario has high taxes, they’re still lower on liquor than BC. And it astonished me how much choice there was in the good old LCBO during a recent stay in YYZ.
The Figeat has a well developed deep and appetizing flavour, a herby note (tarragon?), straw tones, long finish, citrus crisp and bone dry. A pleasing taste although a tad bit of harsh metallic taste lingers on the tongue, it was, still, immensely enjoyable. No 92 pointer but nothing to rue either.
Price: $21.95 at the LCBO in Ontario
Market Liquidity: Like a bargain bottle at Nicolas in Paris.
