RATINGS

93Stephen Tanzer

Good bright red. Complex, soil-inflected aromas of raspberry, espresso, minerals, smoke, flowers, mocha and roasted herbs. Silky-sweet in the way of the best examples from this outstanding premier cru...

...The medium weight flavors are pure, fine and edgy with near perfect balance and a precise, intense, beautifully long finish that etches itself into the palate...

Sweet, fruity, and still quite simple. Lots of smooth fruit. Awaits many a layer of complexity. So youthful.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, 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.
