RATINGS

95James Suckling

So floral, like a bouquet of flowers. Fills the glass. Full-bodied, yet beautifully balanced and subtle. Such purity of fruit and polish.

94Wine Enthusiast

...structured and richly fruity—dense with ripe red fruit flavors cut with acidity.

93The Wine Advocate

...elegant bouquet...exquisitely defined red cherry and strawberry fruit suffused with minerals...medium-bodied with fine tannin, very supple, almost nubile in the mouth, leading to a concentrated finish that lingers long and tenderly.

93Wine Spectator

A ripe, round style...boasts floral, cherry and berry flavors allied to a silky texture. Firm and vibrant, with an underlying mineral element.

93+ Stephen Tanzer

Aromas of raspberry, rose petal, minerals and crushed stone... Dense, fine-grained and taut, displaying piquant mineral energy and mouthwatering acidity to its flavors of raspberry, cherry and blood orange. Really compelling inner-mouth tension...finishes with lovely rising floral length.

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.
