Natalie's Score: 92/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Aromas of rose petals, raspberry, humus, and mocha. Dry and fresh with fruit still underneath waiting to unfold as it ages (allow 1-3 years). Fairly lengthy finish. Try it. Very Burgundian in style. My note: An intoxicatingly exotic perfume wafts up from the glass. This vineyard is only 3.25 hectares. The wine offers lovely aromas of fresh cherry, mocha, earth. Silky smooth and medium-bodied.

Pinot Noir food pairings: veal cutlets, grilled parsnips, grilled portobello mushrooms.

Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

One of my favorite Canadian Winery's with one of my favorite Canadian Pinot Noir's. With a deep ruby color, this has very complex aromas on the nose. Raspberry, cherry, mint and a toasty oak. All these flavors with an earthy palate and a nice long finish. Spectacular!
Anna Bazzo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This Pinot Noir really is a terrific wine and one of my favourites! It has the beautiful aromas of dark cherry, cocoa, ripe berries and vanilla. This Pinot Noir is a well-balanced, medium-bodied wine with juicy berry notes and a smooth memorable finish. Give this Ontario wine a try, as you can't go wrong with a bottle of Le Clos!

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

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.
