Average critic rating : 93.5 points



The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques is flat-out beautiful. There is plenty of 2010 richness in the glass, yet the wine also has elements of finesse and gracefulness to balance some of its more overt qualities. Dark red cherries, menthol, mint, cinnamon and licorice are woven together beautifully in this delineated, finely sculpted wine. There is a centeredness and poise to the Clos Saint-Jacques that is compelling. The integration of the 100% new oak barrels is masterful. Esmonin used 100% whole clusters here. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030. ||Sylvie Esmonin described 2010 as one the coldest years on record since the 1950s. After a rainy summer, the harvest started at the end of September and finished on October 6. Yields were down 40-60%. Esmonin vinified the 2010s slowly and gently. The malos did not finish until August. I tasted all of the wines from tank. The Cote de Nuits-Villages and Gevrey-Chambertin were too reduced to evaluate, so I will have to wait for another opportunity to taste them. Based on what I did taste, 2010 is a fabulous vintage at this address. Wine Advocate.February, 2012
