Vincor International and Boisset, La Famille des Grands Vins, of Nuits-St-Georges, France, revealed the design for Le Clos Jordan Winery in Canada's Niagara Peninsula. The vision started in 1998 when Boisset traveled to the region and fell in love with the terroir. Vines were planted in 2000, 2001, 2002.
The first vintage is expected in 2006 as the principal vineyard was planted in 2002 with vines shipped from a nursery in Burgundy, France. The winery produces only Pinot Noir and chardonnay using traditional Burgundian techniques to capture the distinct Niagara terroir
The name Clos in French in an enclosure. The four Le Clos Jordanne vineyards (130 acres) are enclosed around the village of Jordan (in French-Jordanne). The location was chosen as the vineyards have similar soils and slopes to the Cote d'or in Burgundy
The wineries vision is to create world class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir
Le Clos Jordanne has created an audible buzz in the wine world. First, its 2005 Claystone Terrace Chardonnay captured the top spot for Chardonnay in the “Judgement of Montreal” experts' tasting; now, at the recent Ontario Wine Awards, Le Clos Jordanne Winemaker Thomas Bachelder was named Winemaker of the Year 2009
Philosophy: To capture the distinct essence of the Niagara terroir using purity, passion and precision.
