Tasting Notes

Sleek and focused, delivering currant, wild cherry, rose hip and mineral flavors, this red offers a core of ripe fruit notes that keep it grounded, and well-integrated tannins provide balance. Fine length. Best from 2021 through 2036.

Score: 95

Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator Maturity: 2021-2036 20 September 2017

A discreet but not invisible touch of wood sets off an intensely floral nose that in particular displays notes of violet and lavender along with plum, black cherry, spice and gentle earth scents. There is once again excellent volume to the sleek but powerful and concentrated flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the moderately austere finish that also delivers superb persistence. While this too will require extended keeping it contrasts with the grands crus in that it should be approachable after only 6 to 8 years of bottle age.

Score: 93 - 95

Allen Meadows, Burghound Maturity: 2029+ 15 January 2016

The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint Jacques will be aged in 80% new oak, although my sample came from a new barrel. It has a very perfumed, voluminous bouquet with billowing red berry fruit, rose petals and subtle flinty aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine saline entry. You can feel the mouth tingling here with wonderful tension and poise on the sustained finish. This is a more linear "CSJ" than recent vintages, but no less entrancing. It challenges the Clos de Bèze for the silver medal behind the Chambertin.

Score: 95 - 97
