I am a big fan of all the Le Clos Jordanne wines. I am very proud to say I work on the team at Le Clos and this wine really is one of my favourites. It is the boldest of the single vineyards and has notes of Cherry, Hung meat, Cedar, dense fruit. Big Tannins but they are refined and silky. This wine can age or should be decanted prior to service if you drink now.
I really wanted to like this wine, being a local wine. Deeply coloured for a pinot, this sports dark cherry fruit and fine tannin. But amidst it all is considerable sourness and an averall lack lack of balance. This simply does not have the harmony of fine pinot noir. Ambitious for sure, and even quite good, just not excellent and very over-priced at $45. Tasted Sept 2012.
