The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru, matured in 70% new oak. It has a very detailed, focused and yet unapologetically tightly wound bouquet that demands some encouragement in the glass, as if punishing you for infanticide (hey, I’m just doing my job.) Over the course of a few minutes those crushed granite, almost flinty aromas begin to emerge. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, perfectly judged acidity, just a little confit in style but with so much energy on the finish that it does not know what to do with itself. There are touches of dark chocolate on the aftertaste, completing a really lovely Clos Saint-Jacques. Superb. Tasted at the Domaine. Neal Martin – Vinous Media

 

The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques was due for racking in the New Year, Sylvie waiting because she wanted the wine to spend longer on the lees. This vintage includes 60% whole bunch fruit. There was a lot of reduction on the nose as Sylvie forewarned so we will have to bypass the aromatics. On the palate there is much more expression. What strikes you is the sheer untrammelled energy contained in this Clos Saint-Jacques that immediately revivified the senses. It feels extremely harmonious, the new oak holding a sway upon the final third at the moment but given the requisite bottle age then that will be assimilated. As usual, it is a Clos Saint-Jacques that leans more towards black than red fruit (à la Rousseau or Fourrier) but there is great precision and length in situ. NM – The Wine Advocate
