Natalie's Score: 93/100

A medium-bodied red with a seductive, silky texture and a Burgundian style that still bears the Niagara signature. Winemaker and owner Thomas Bachelder has proven himself to be the master of pinot noir in this country, starting with his first works of art at Le Clos Jordanne. Follow this winery, and buy now, while you can.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This Pinot Noir is reminiscent of Thomas Bachelder's Le Clos Jordanne days. Elegant and smooth in style. Dried red fruit, raisin, prune, vanilla, earthy and stony. Mild tannins and medium+ body. This one is going on my shopping list. Exquisite! Thanksgiving wine.

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.
