Foxtrot’s 2006 Pinot Noir and 2010 Chardonnay was recently involved in two separate tastings with great results. Here are some comments from both of the tastings:

Chardonnay Tasting

“I thought you’d be interested to learn about a small blind tasting I organized recently. I really wanted to know how good your Foxtrot Chardonnay 2010 was, so I decided to put it head-to-head against one of the top Burgundy: Corton-Charlemagne, Bonneau du Martray 2008 (130$ and scored 20/20 by Steven Spurrier in Decanter). Two tasters out of 4 were professionals…and guess what: all four tasters gave the Foxtrot Chardonnay 93 points (without any consultation) and 91 points to the Burgundy. Both wines had a very similar style, but we all thought the Foxtrot was more complex and had more layers.”

Pinot Noir Tasting

“I became acquainted with your label through Rob Caine. He told me he visited you for a tasting in Naramata a couple of months ago, though I know he was championing your wine before then. He told me to get in touch with Torsten to see if I might be able to do the same. Rob served a bottle of 2006 Foxtrot Pinot Noir blind next to a wine from the Cote de Nuits. The table was attended by some of the most advanced pallets that I know, yet we all assumed that this must be a great Burgundy. Was it Liger-Belair? No, that smokey delight must be Chambolle Musigny Les Cras from Roumier. We were floored, and some of us embarrassed to realize it was a BC wine.”
