Natalie's Score: 88/100

I'm reluctant to say that this is not my favourite pinot noir from Le Clos Jordanne, even though it is still attractive. The grapes for this wine grow in a warmer part of the vineyard, and so it has a richer, fleshier style as compared to other leaner, more acidic pinots. Nonetheless, lovely notes of ripe cherry and some judicious oak.

Pinot Noir food pairings: coq au vin, beef bourguignon, grilled salmon, cassoulet, roasted and braised lamb.

Astrid Young Sommelier ISG CAPS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium garnet, clear and bright with orange tinges at edge. Understated nose with a wisp of booze on the swirl; medium bodied and completely balanced in the mouth with no one element exceeding the next: fruit, alcohol and acids all play their part in this well put together wine. just enough chewyness, i suspect from a partial whole cluster ferment and some press-wine grip which helps to support the fruit into its seemingly endless finish. new oak does not play a huge part in the overall flavor profile, though it's well-developed texture shows that the oak has done a fine job of knitting it all together into a neat package. Dried flowers prevail on the nose, plus notes of earth and game add complexity while not being intrusive of the brighter fruit. a slight orange note detected, i suspect some very young vines possibly in the blend also. exceedingly good. tells a story.
Winemaker Sebastien Jacquey uses about 33% new French oak on this Pinot Noir to balance the ripe fruit character that it delivers. - Community Wine Reviews
