See previous notes from a few months ago in early July. This was Bass Phillip’s entry level Cuvée but under new owner, Jacques Fourrier it will be retired and the new entry level Pinot will be Bin 17K going forward. This had lovely fresh red fruited aromatics of cherry and strawberry — a day ago
After a couple years absence, Exultet has thankfully brought back this gem and it’s just a bit funkier than previous vintages.
That hint of funk comes early before making way for a crisp finish of some body and lime minerality,
For me, this is a truly special Canadian wine, — 2 months ago

A nice rosé, more citrusy than fruity. Very easy drinking, dry. — 2 months ago
Phillip Jones has sold Bass Phillip to Burgundian winemaker, Jacques Fourrier. The former entry level Cuvée, Crown Prince has gone and replaced by Bin 17K , the ultra high density planting of 17,000 vines per Hectare planted by Jones. The wine had a slight cloudiness which is often a trademark of BP as they are bottled unfiltered. Aromas of Loam, red plum and red cherry with stalky notes. The following night a raspberry note was apparent. A delicious entry level Cuvée, light to medium weight, designed for early drinking. The legacy of Phillip Jones is in good hands. Part of his role is as a consultant for the first 3 years. I will look forward to tasting The Estate in the next few weeks. — a month ago
Tobacco. Smoke. A bit of red fruit…. Mainly raspberry. It really has come along after aging it a few years.
Looking up places to stay in PEC so I can go back to get this wine as we speak… Probably my favourite Pinot from there, or dare I say… Ontario. — 3 months ago
