LCBO Food & Drink Early Summer 2024

Look for the LCBO’s new summer gift bags in stores and online.

La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir LCBO 367896, $34.95 La Crema Monterey Chardonnay LCBO 158683, $29.95 The perfect gift to take to a wedding shower—a red and a white from La Crema, the veteran Californian producer crafting Burgundian-style Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the West Coast. From the cool vineyards comes a plush, Pinot full of ripe red berry flavours and a poised Chardonnay tasting of white peach, pear and key lime with a touch of spicy oak.

Elevación 1250 Blanco Tequila LCBO 31949, $69.95 The name refers to the altitude of the volcanic valley near Amatitán in Jalisco, where the blue agave for this fine spirit is sustainably farmed. Master Distiller Iliana Partida brings out fascinating nuances of minerality within a braid of flavours that suggest white pepper, newly mown grass, poached pear, citrus and, above all, earthy cooked agave.

Good Day Lychee Soju LCBO 36571, 360 mL, $10.20 South Korea’s favourite spirit, soju is also the biggest-selling liquor in the world. Lower-alcohol versions are popular with mixologists, with top brands like Good Day (which has around the same ABV as wine) served neat or as a cocktail component. Intro duce friends to this lychee version, made with real juice.

Bollinger Special Cuvée Brut Champagne LCBO 384529, $99.95 Bolly first introduced its Special Cuvée in 1911, and it has been gifted and welcomed with unfailing delight ever since. Elegant, mature and complex, with a superfine mousse, it defines Champagne’s timeless sophistication—a gift that turns any occasion into a true celebration.
