LE GRAND CLOS
Le Grand Clos, Le Clos Jordanne's "Grand Cru" of Niagara is created exclusively from Le Clos Jordanne Vineyard's best parcels. This wine is a rare breed exemplifying elegance, character, complexity and purity at its peak.
Le Grand Clos Pinot Noir: The warmest of all the vineyard blocks, provides great complexity to this wine balancing its concentration and elegance. The bouquet of the Grand Clos Pinot Noir displays layers of red and black forest fruits dancing with notes of hummus, crushed leaves and violets. The second nose gains even more complexity and intensity with a hint of cassis, black current, tar and tobacco leaves. The palate is built around a solid core of concentrated fruit and tannins. With a firm and refreshing attack of black fruit, we move into a tight, elegant and rich mid palate, balanced between minerality and complex aromas. The final is long and persistent with rich tannins, dark cherries and strong iron-like minerality.
Le Grand Clos Chardonnay: The richness of limestone in this warm vineyard site definitely has a positive impact on the balance of the Grand Clos Chardonnay. Being only a mere 100 meters away from Le Clos Jordanne Vineyard, the difference in balance and complexity is outstanding. With a bright pale yellow straw colour, white/silver undertones and slow but moderate legs, this wine displays concentration and balance. Its bouquet reveals intoxicating notes of pear, apple, ripe citrus, white flowers with a hint of tropical fruit. The second nose gains complexity by showcasing layers of fresh butter, wet stone and light hazelnuts. The palate reveals a rich and smooth texture, well balanced by a stunning minerality and great core of citrus fruit. The structure is restrained and in line with the volume of fruit concentration this wine presents. The final is long and generous with ripe citrus fruits with a sense of tannins and acidity.
