Editorial Reviews for Le Clos Jordanne Pinot Noir Niagara Peninsula Vqa Twenty Mile Bench
This is also marked by smoky oak tones but with plenty of burnished cherry fruit and earth notes to support the added spice. On the palate this exhibits superb acidity with sweet red cherry fruit, which contrasts with the layers of earth, tea, and integrated wood spice notes. This offers great transparency and very good length in a precise style. It’s a pure, and even slightly delicate wine, but one with immediate appeal. 91pts
There’s a touch of wood on the nose here, you get both the spice tones and a little sweetness that adds some plumpness to the slightly under-ripe fruit tones on the nose. The aromatics are accented with floral and herbal notes that take on a slight tobacco tone when combined with the smoky wood notes. Gentle on entry, this reveals a very nice core of ripe fruit, that’s a bit surprising after the nose. Perhaps a bit simple, again, but certainly varietal and well made with a nice, refreshing acid wash on the finish. 86pts
Deep and richly layered aromatics are full of smoke, clay and stem tones. On the palate this is richer than the Claystone though also softer with more of a sois bois character to it. The dark, blackberry fruit is muscular, and supported by very fine tannins, though this lacks the precision of the Claystone it may have a more promising evolution. The finish feels compressed though seems to have ample reserves of fruit. 89pts
Nice finessed nose, very restrained. Thinner and leaner than the other pinot's from this winery. Green pepper notes and a little vegetal flavor. Very mineral and burgundian. Offers less obvious fruit, but more finesse overall.
Spicy raspberry and blackberry notes upfront. A touch of dirt and earth on the mouth. Mainly, however, the wine is smooth and silky with a nice sweet fruity bramble finish.
Much earthier on the nose than the Village Reserve Pinot of the same year. The main flavors are bramble, earth and green peppers. Finishes on white pepper tones. Very nice.
Clos Jordanne is a joint venture between Boisset and Vincor Canada. When Jean-Charles Boisset started discussions about this project, he soon realised that the poor state of viticulture in most of the Niagara escarpment meant that he would have to plant his own vineyards. Given this, the gestation period for these wines has been much longer than shallower pockets could have tolerated, but the end results have been greater than even the most optimistic of observers could have expected. Visually, the wine is an intense deep cherry red, with an intoxicating mixture of cedar, vanilla and red forest berries on the nose. In the mouth, the red fruit flavours blend with black cherries and overtones of eucalyptus and vanilla-tinged forest fruit. Already quite silky in the mouth, the mineral finish is long and complex with rich cherry pit nuttiness, and a firm acid structure.
