Description
Small but mighty, Prince Edward County is a gem of a region, made all the more impressive and special by the range, quality and refinement of the wines crafted by so many excellent wineries. Closson Chase, which is one of the region's pioneering premium producers, is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2018. Pinot specialist Keith Tyers has been the winemaker since 2015, and his terroir-focused approach seeks to make the connection between the soil and the glass obvious to all who enjoy his wines. Look for an elegant, perfumed wine with energetic cherry, red fruit, spice and earth. Enjoy with grilled pork or salmon.
Tasting Notes
As noted in my review for the Closson Chase Churchside Vineyard pinot, it's great to see site specificity emerging with greater clarity with each passing vintage, and despite a winemaker change. Although the latest releases from Closson Chase under Keith Tyers are tighter, brighter and less oxidative overall than those from the Debra Paskus era, it seems that Prince Edward County terroir in general, and Closson's two parcels on either side of Closson road, have the last word on wine profile. The Closson Chase Vineyard pinot is consistently more open and high-toned, and perfumed with typical tart cran-cherry county fruit and delicate floral aromatics. 2014 has yielded a lithe, sinewy, energetic pinot, very fine grained but with deceptive power and surprising length on the palate considering the modest 12.5% alcohol - the magic of PEC. A really lovely, elegant expression, and nicely priced, too. Drink or hold this another 3-4 years. Score - 90. (John Szabo, MS, winealign.com, Sept.
