2006 Le Clos Jordanne (Ontario Wine)
Did anyone have an opportunity to taste their 2006 release? Any opinions? I'm wondering if they can "compete" with their 05's. I noticed they raised their prices for 06.
Le Clos Jordanne's premium wines ("The Grand Clos Chardonnay" and "Le Grand Clos Pinot Noir") are both now available through the LCBO's Classics Catalogue. I believe you can also order the 2006 vintage directly by contacting the winery at http://www.leclosjordanne.com.
The 2006 Pinots are their best ever in my view. They are extremely light because it was such a cruddy year weather-wise, but they've parlayed the lightness into an enduring elegance. La Petite Vineyard is especially worthwhile.
I've posted complete tasting notes for the Pinots here:
I'll post my tasting notes of the Chardonnays in a couple days. They have gobs of oak, but it is very well-integrated and buoyed by the fruit. Great complexity this year.
