This joint venture by Boisset and Vincor is an exceptional experiment in characterizing the terroir of the Niagara region, through a fully Burgundian, single-vineyard approach to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In the recently-released 2007 vintage, Le Grand Clos Pinot Noir, the most exclusive bottling produced by Le Clos Jordanne, stole the show with incredible depth and compact, tight aromas and flavors that, at this point, just hint at the complexity of this fruity, earthy, mineral, smoothly handled beast of a wine. It reflects the character of an exceptionally warm and dry summer.
