The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques has a beautifully composed bouquet with joyful, vivacious mulberry and redcurrant aromas that open wonderfully with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, crisp and tensile with tart red cherries, crushed strawberry, raspberry preserve and orange rind towards the harmonious and sustained finish. The class shows through here.
Tasting note: This also exhibits plenty of earth and sauvage elements yet the fruit profile is slightly higher-toned and a bit more elegant as well. There is a driving minerality and underlying tension to the succulent yet refined middle weight flavors that brim with dry extract on the impeccably well-balanced finale. This classy effort is at once built-to-age but not backward and should be accessible after only a few years. Allen Meadows – Burghound – Outstanding
Medium red. Knockout nose combines raspberry, darker berries, rose petal, minerals and smoke. Deep and utterly seamless wine with outstanding inner-mouth clarity and lift to its blackberry and floral flavors. Still youthfully tight but the wine's obvious sucrosité draws out the very long, building finish. Combines the silkiness of texture and the vitality of the vintage's best examples.
