Lot #48. Louis Jadot (Domaine Louis Jadot) Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 2012

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 94 NM.
"Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint Jacques from Louis Jadot, which has deepest in colour of the five growers, the has entrancing purity on the nose: dark cherries mixed with cranberry leaf, bergamot and minerals all beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, quite a firm grip in the mouth, the result of a firm backbone. I actually thought this might have been Sylvie Esmonin's Clos Saint Jacques. This is a long-term proposition - patience required!" Wine Advocate #221, Oct 2015
Lot Location: Orange County
