Blackberries and ripe strawberries with lemon rind and rose petals, following through to a full body and dense, powerful tannins, which are, nonetheless, ripe and mature. Wonderful richness and density at the finish. Solid as a rock. Try after 2022. James Suckling

The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru has a very seductive, candied bouquet with pure blueberries and red cherry fruit under a veneer of vanillary new oak that seems in sync with the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy ripe tannins, well-judged acidity, smooth in texture, but you might argue, missing the mineral tension on the finish compared to others. It is a very competent Clos Saint-Jacques albeit not the most memorable. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.

Tasted from bottle, the 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques (Domaine Louis Jadot) is one of the most reticent wines in the Jadot portfolio this year, reluctantly unfurling in the glass with notes of red berries, rose petals, forest floor and cedary new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, velvety and concentrated, with a deep, multidimensional core, rich structuring tannins and bright acids, concluding with a notably long and expansive finish. While there is considerable upside here for the patient, this will demand significant bottle age. While the 2015 rendition is more flamboyant, the 2016 may well rival it in ultimate quality. William Kelley – The Wine Advocate

Vigorous bright purple, more youthful than the others to date. Savoury Gevrey nose, vigorous fresh fruit, a really intense mouthful, very fresh youthful style, stands up very well. Jasper Morris – Inside Burgundy

Tasting note: There is a distinct coolness to the wonderfully pure and airy aromas of earth, rose petal, red currant and the sauvage that are set off by noticeable but not intrusive wood and menthol nuances. The rich, dense and sappy broad-shouldered yet refined flavors possess a suave and polished mouth feel, all wrapped in a stony and beautifully long finish. This excellent effort is markedly firm but very well-balanced and should age effortlessly for years. Allen Meadows - Burghound
