the winning trio

2006 Le Clos Jordanne

For my aunt's last barbecue here last week, we drank these three beauties. A trio of 2006 Le Clos Jordanne chardonnay's: the Village Reserve, Claystone Terrace, and Le Clos Jordanne Vineyard. A wonderful expression of the grape, and drinking beautifully.

I opened them the night before, to give them some air without decanting. Being selfish, I went downstairs late at night to drink a glass of Village Reserve. The rail on the fridge shelf broke, and the bottles tipped over. I didn't realize the stopper had come off on the Claystone Terrace until the fucking bottle was half empty.

The aroma was exquisite as I knelt down and greedily lapped at the spilled wine.
