From bottle, the 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Estournelles Saint-Jacques (Domaine Louis Jadot) is showing beautifully, offering up a youthful but expressive bouquet of dark wild berries, currant leaf, coniferous forest floor and subtle hints of peony. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny with a generous core of cool, sappy fruit, melting tannins and a beautifully defined finish. It's a beautifully complete, elegant Estournelles Saint-Jacques that confirms its terrific performance from barrel. While it's sufficiently supple to be approachable now, a decade of patience will be rewarded by considerably greater complexity.—William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Tasting note: This is even more restrained than the Lavaut with its admirably pure and distinctly floral aromas of both red and black raspberry, soft earth and hints of oak toast. The round and supple middle weight flavors possess a completely different mouth feel with equally prominent minerality though not nearly the power and muscle on the firm but not really austere finale.—Allen Meadows, Burghound
