Le Clos Jordanne Le Grand Clos Pinot Noir 2017

Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaThomas Bachelder's return to Niagara's Le Clos Jordanne, where he was the founding winemaker from 2003-2010, is good news for the wine. This pinot release is Bachelder's first since his return, and it is more than promising. Bachelder is all about the place, or in pinot language, blocks, and this wine comes off the west side of Le Clos Jordanne vineyard. The colour is light, and the nose is alive with cedar washed black cherries and an earthy/mushroom undercurrent. Fresh and intense, its stony, mineral red fruit persists into its lengthy, dry finish, and all that with a 12.5 alcohol by volume tag. A delicious style finished under a Stelvin screwcap closure.Tasted: 22 March 2020Tasted by: Prices: QC 45.50 SAQ Producer: Le Clos JordanneDistributors: Arterra Wines Canada
