- 100% Pinot Noir
Thomas Bachelder will be known to many of our customers as the first winemaker at Le Clos Jordanne. He has now gone out on his own, together with his wife, Mary Delaney. In their first vintage in 2009, they made three Chardonnays from three different regions – Burgundy, Niagara and Oregon.
We are excited to offer two of Thomas’ Chardonnays from Oregon and Niagara. The Oregon Chardonnay is more robust and honeyed in comparison to the Niagara, which is fresh and lifted with aromas of white stone fruits. The winemaking is the same in both regions (using wild yeasts, minimal intervention, and the same barrel makers) so any difference in the wines is down solely to the vineyard. A blind tasting of the two wines may throw up some interesting results!
