The 2014 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques has an enticing bouquet with pure wild strawberry, raspberry and cold stone scents that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a tightly wound opening, perhaps more reticent than the Vieilles Vignes at this premature stage, but very focused with fine tension towards the saline finish. This is a very fine Clos Saint Jacques, though whether it will ultimately surpass the Vieilles Vignes remains to be seen. Tasted November 2016. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

 

Tasting note: This is also markedly floral with more elegant aromas of spice, plum liqueur, mocha, earth and a hint of sandalwood. There is outstanding richness to the wonderfully vibrant and intense flavors where the underlying minerality is even more prominent while delivering simply terrific depth and length on the ever-so-slightly warm finale. This is also constructed to age but should be approachable young if desired as the supporting tannins are dense but much finer than those of the old vines cuvée. Burghound- Sweetspot Outstanding

(60% vendange entier; 60% new oak): Saturated, bright red-ruby. Precise aromas of black cherry, licorice, minerals and violet. Like liquid silk in the mouth, but with lovely sappy energy to the black cherry and dark chocolate flavors. Finishes broad, perfumed and long. These wines seem a bit stunted today owing to the cold cellar temperature. Stephen Tanzer
