Le Clos Jordanne Le Grand Clos Pinot Noir 2018 (ON $45)
A few Wednesdays ago I shared the 2nd wine from my blind Pinot Tasting and today I’m back with the final installment of the individual wines!
The third wine we tried was from Canada. It was Le Clos Jordanne Le Grand Clos Pinot Noir 2018. And weirdly enough, this was actually my first time trying a wine from this producer – and I don’t know why! Big thanks to @danbroten for sharing this bottle with me.
This wine sang traditional Pinot notes – cherries, craisins, bark, twigs, and mushrooms. There were layers to it on the palate and it definitely felt complex. The acidity was med+ and the fine tannins were well-integrated on the palate.
The “Le Grand Clos” part of the name refers to the location of the vineyard. The Grand Clos parcels are more austere, yet somehow more noble. Le Clos Jordanne notes that you can think of “Grand Clos” as the “Grand Cru” of Niagara.
The 2018 is now sold out, but you can purchase a bottle of the 2019 vintage at the LCBO.
What was the last Grand Cru wine that you tried?
