The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques, which includes 60% whole bunch fruit and the same percentage of new wood, has a very mineral-driven, harmonious, sensual bouquet that is one of the best that I have tasted from the domaine. There is energy being emitted from the glass here even before you dig your nose in! The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin. It comes replete with vibrant red fruit infused with orange rind, white pepper, almost sorbet-like towards the composed and very tensile finish that has impressive depth and a very long aftertaste. You can feel the tongue tingling long after this has departed, just a touch of orange zest lingering a minute later. This is an outstanding Clos Saint-Jacques from Sylvie Esmonin. Neal Martin – The Wine Advocate

Note: 40+ year old vines; 60% whole clusters

Tasting note: A discreet touch of wood easily allows the overtly floral and wonderfully elegant spicy black cherry aromas to be appreciated. There is terrific intensity to the mineral-driven and once tautly muscular flavors that deliver the same superb depth on the very firm, serious and hugely long finale. While there is a very mild hint of warmth there is nothing else for which to reproach this beauty of a CSJ. Outstanding. Allen Meadows - Burghound

 
(roughly 25 hectoliters per hectare produced in 2015; Esmonin told me she uses 100% new oak for this cuvée "in principle"): Bright ruby-red. Tight, pure aromas of black fruits, licorice and minerals complemented by subtle oak spices. Dense, sweet and fine-grained, conveying an impression of strong energy and extract to its slightly inky black fruit and violet flavors. Plush and broad but not at all heavy. Best today on the rising, resounding finish. An outstanding, eminently ageworthy vintage for this bottling but even today it's not especially austere. Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media
