Natalie's Score: 90/100

The 2011 vintage was difficult yet Le Clos Jordanne still manages to pull out a solid pinot noir for its Village Reserve. This wine cries out for food: feed it roast chicken or planked salmon.

Terry Jeans rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This Burgundy-inspired pinot is ruby/garnet with beautiful ripe cherry aromas. A crisp acidity and flavours of dark, lush fruit this pinot noir ranks up there with some of the best in Ontario. A perfect food wine that I paired simply with burgers or equally good on its own. Delicious!
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2011 Jackson Triggs Le Clos Jordanne Village Reserve Pinot Noir was fermented using natural yeast; this is a first vintage from winemaker Sebastian Jacquey. The wine has lifted aromas of green underbrush, rosehip, pomegranate, old wood, faint clove and light spiciness. It is a light to medium bodied; extra-dry, fruity wine; with forward acidity, tight tannins and a medium finish. This wine is both food friendly and a sipper; it will benefit from further aging for the tannins and acidity to come together – drink 2017 – 2022. My impression: NICE, 89 pts.

The style of Burgundy with a Niagara signature in this Pinot Noir. The 2011 vintage offers deep minerality and mouth-watering acidity for food. This Niagara Pinot Noir is made Burgundian style. The 2011 was fermented using natural yeasts and is winemaker Sebastian Jacquey's first vintage. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
