For wine collectors, Le Grand Vin from Osoyoos Larose has emerged as a must-have Canadian red. This is the fourth vintage – and certainly the finest – to be released. The improved refinement of the wine reflects the maturity of the vineyard, where planting began in 1999. And the volume – 18,500 six-bottle cases compared with 4,000 six-bottle cases in 2001 – shows that most of the 60-acre vineyard is now in full production.Osoyoos Larose is a joint venture that was formed in 1998 between Vincor Canada and Groupe Taillan of Bordeaux. Except for marketing, the French have been calling most of the shots, including the choice of the vineyard, the Merlot-dominant planting strategy, the recruitment of a winemaker and the equipping of the cellar. Pascal Madevon, the Parisian winemaker, insists that he is making Okanagan wine, not French wine. However, the Bordeaux signature to his wines is unmistakable. This is a generous and dark-hued wine, with inviting red fruit aromas and flavours of plums, black cherries, and chocolate well integrated with oak flavours (the wine has 18 months in barrels, 60% of which were new, 40% one-year old). The tannins are long and supple but firm enough for reasonable longevity. On the palate, the texture shows excellent concentration. The finish is long and elegant. 92 points.
