2017 Metis Blanc
A Chardonnay of classic proportions, this is a wine built on the often-contrasting pillars of precision and richness. It blooms out of the glass with dewy orchard fruit and white flowers. An ample, satiating mouthfeel is pinned on a long, elegant stream of saline freshness and a finish that's zesty and firm.
2017 Metis Rouge
A blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Gamay, this is an explosively aromatic wine combining spice with round aromas of dark fruit. The palate is meaty and full of energy, it brims with dark red fruit you can bite into, yet remains positively vibrant. The density of flavours permeating the mouth is unmistakable and the finish is spicy, bright and invigorating.
2017 Chardonnay Cuvée Dix-Neuvième
A wine that even in its youth shines with poise and class. The bouquet is open, fleshy, but understated.The palate is rich in supple orchard fruit and has equal amounts of translucency, gentleness and arresting precision all leading to a compact and persistent finish.
2017 Cabernet Franc Cuvée Madeline
Rich dark purple in colour, this is a wine of deeply-rooted structure and classical dimensions. The warm, unbridled intensity of Madelines from warm years are succeeded in 2017 by restraint and cool-headed Old World noblesse. The bouquet combines notes of blue-blooded Bordelais flavours and the spicy lushness of Niagara. The palate is a study of symmetry, density of fruit and refined, round tannins - all holding together with seamless precision. It's a wine that takes you on a world-wide journey of Cab Franc references, yet speaks a language uniquely its own.

High demand and short supply has become the norm for Pearl Morissette, whose skyrocketing fame knows no bounds. Burgundy trained François Morissette is on our list of top-shelf Canadian producers who consistently deliver some of the most gorgeous wines imaginable. They are uncompromising wines of terroir that easily transcend the boundaries of the Niagara Peninsula.
François’ career in wine began in his early 20s when he spent a year working for Domaine Alain Gras in Saint-Romain, learning about the traditional winemaking methods of the region. Once he moved back to Quebec, he worked towards becoming a sommelier and spent the rest of the 1990s building some of the most ambitious wine lists in both Quebec and Ontario.
In 2000, the call of the vines was to loud to ignore and he moved back to France to pursue winemaking full-time, working for some of the most famous producers in the Côte d’Or including Frédéric Mugnier in Chambolle-Musigny, Christian Gouges of Domaine Henri Gouges in Nuits-Saint-Georges and Domaine Roulot in Meursault. After 7 years in Burgundy, he returned to Canada with an eye to make his own wine using the knowledge he gained abroad, and it wasn’t long before he found a partner (Mel Pearl, a developer in Toronto) with whom to make it all happen.
The estate now owns two vineyards: the 19th Street Vineyard in the Twenty Mile Beach VQA and the home vineyard which is next to the winery, that is part of the Creek Shore VQA.
