TORONTO, Sept. 24, 2012 /CNW/ - Long before your first dish is served, your table setting will be making an impression on your guests. Believing that every element of dining should contribute to a luxurious experience, Niagara's ultra-premium Burgundian style winery, Le Clos Jordanne, has curated a selection of stylish table settings for Thanksgiving this year.
"Le Clos Jordanne is all about fusing tradition with innovation," said Franco Timpano, Director of Marketing, Le Clos Jordanne.

Four Wines, Four Tables
No doubt about it, Thanksgiving is the culinary star of the fall season. But while basting your turkey may have a monopoly on your time the day of, don't forget the other details that will make for a delectable dining experience. Whether you're a novice or a pro, hosting family or friends, eating traditional fare or not - Le Clos Jordanne has the perfect wine and table setting to meet all of your needs. Now the only question is, how will you choose just one?
Le Clos Jordanne Vineyard Chardonnay + The Traditional Table
For those who are inclined towards a more classic Thanksgiving arrangement, choose the Le Clos Jordanne Vineyard Chardonnay. Notes of ripe citrus, fresh butter, and toasted oak are the quintessential match for a table of tawny colours and fall foliage. The wine is decadent and complex, but maintains sophistication through its tight structure and subtle layers, much like a bountiful table with heirloom crystal and antique china.

Claystone Terrace Pinot Noir + The Modern Rustic Table
A cozy, rural table provides romantic old-world appeal while contemporary glassware and flatware keep the feeling clean and modern. The Claystone Terrace Pinot Noir is the perfect wine to serve with this table, featuring aromas of gaminess, chocolate, and earthiness. Its flavours of wet stone and black fruits are further enhanced by décor accents of rough linen and twine.

Village Reserve Pinot Noir + The Chic Table
The Village Reserve Pinot Noir is viscous, with a dark ruby colouring. To enhance this shade, pair with a rich, neutral palette of cream, silver, taupe, and charcoal. Geometric shapes and stripes are an ideal accompaniment to the bold nature of the wine, creating an elegant and exotic table setting. Complex notes of cassis, mint, and black pepper are revealed in the bouquet, making this the ultimate wine for a connoisseur of excellent taste.

Village Reserve Chardonnay + The Whimsical Table
This wine is bright and clear with a pale straw colour, perfect for a table setting of high contrast hues and metallic accents. Its initial impression on the palate reveals crisp and intense notes such as lemon and peach, which can be complemented by vivid jewel tones in your décor like fuchsia and chartreuse. Polka dots, napkins tied with bows, and mini chrysanthemums make for charming details that put a fresh spin on the typical Thanksgiving table.
