Natalie's Score: 90/100

Even in this challenging vintage of 2011, Le Clos Jordanne's Pinot Noir from Le Clos Jordanne Vineyard performs well. The grapes for this wine grow in a warmer part of the vineyard, on the eastern side, and so it has a richer, fleshier style as compared to other leaner, more acidic pinots. Lovely notes of ripe cherry and some judicious oak. The winery uses a partial whole cluster fermentation and some pressing which results in a fleshy style with good structure. Beautifully textured with a long finish. Try it with roast chicken or turkey.

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

Pair this Pinot with salmon steaks or duck breast. The vines are planted in silt and limestone for this Niagara Pinot Noir. Deep minerality with a dried violet aroma from start to finish.

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.
