RATINGS

94-97Vinous / IWC

Gorgeous aromatic lift and energy. Polished and refined throughout, the 2013 is super-expressive.....looks to be one of the wines of the vintage.

94Burghound.com

Notably ripe with its expressive and attractively cool nose of black cherry and raspberry, earth, floral and discreet spice elements. The palate impression is impressively rich with excellent volume along with plenty of the hallmark minerality

93The Wine Advocate

An elegant bouquet with pure red cherry, sous-bois and rose petal scents that blossom in the glass. Just gorgeous! The palate is very well balanced with crisp tannin, very well judged acidity with raspberry, redcurrant and plenty of spice

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Gevrey-Chambertin, Clos Saint-Jacques

Clos St. Jacques is a 17.7-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation of Burgundy. Most Burgundy experts consider Clos St. Jacques to often be of equal quality to the nearby Grand Crus Chambertin and Clos de Beze. When the vineyard rankings were made in the 1930s it was decided that only vineyards contiguous with Chambertin and Clos de Beze could be Grand Crus. Clos St. Jacques lies to the west of the Grand Crus, but is very well situated at the same elevation as Chambertin and it has soil similar to Chambertin’s. Clive Coates notes that Clos St. Jacques “can be exquisite; rich, ample, full-bodied and distinctive.” Principal landowners are Armand Rousseau, 5.6 acres; Sylvie Esmonin, 4.5 acres; and Bruno Clair, 2.5 acres.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
