Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Aromas of creamy lemon curd, golden apple, honey, warm apple pie spice, and a slight mineral hint. Full bodied with a smooth texture, creamy, but with tons of mouthwatering acidity, overall very well balanced. Ripe anf flavourful on the palate, with mouthwatering orchard fruit, more of that structured minerality, and a long finish. Enjoy with classic roast chicken, butternut squash, scallops or lobster.
Le Clos Jordanne Grand Clos 2018 Chardonnay is a full-bodied, bone-dry Chardonnay richly-layered with apple cobbler, lemon pudding, baking spice, mineral and well-integrated toasty oak spice flavours balanced with vibrant acidity. So perfect in every way. Pair with lobster bisque and beurre brun sautéed scallops. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

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.
