Le Clos Jordanne Le Grand Clos Pinot Noir 2018, Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Escarpment, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada: I hesitated on giving this wine a score of 96, not because it doesn't deserve it (it does), but because this will make it difficult for me to buy a case or two ;) A stunning, benchmark Niagara Pinot Noir from the master of the genre, Thomas Bachelder. Aromas of ripe cherry and freshly turned earth. Medium-bodied with a silky texture. Superb quality. Perfect on its own or with roast chicken. Pinot Noir food pairings: pork roast, duck confit, braised beef prime ribs. Drink: 2020 - 2025 184564 12.5% D 750 mL $44.95 Score: 96/100. May 2021. Top Rated Red Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart
