Le Clos Jordanne Claystone Terrace Pinot Noir 2020

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Claystone Terrace Pinot Noir is sourced from the slope on the western part of the vineyard where the limestone-clay proportion is well balanced and there is a great exposure to the lake. Despite the rustic/muscular characteristics of the Pinot from Claystone, the wines typically show overall balance with strong limestone minerality and a pleasant, thick, and sappy texture creating much tension in the mouthfeel.

Claystone has always been tight and restrained in the early stages of its evolution, and that is the case here. Once it opens up there is a lovely perfumed minerality note on the nose with a melange of wild black raspberries, black cherries, red currants, soft spices and a floral note. There are added meaty notes on the palate with forest berries, crème de cassis, some ripe tannin structure and complexity. It’s deep and rich yet maintains grace and poise through a long and fresh finish.
