This is also notably floral in character but with more obvious complexity and refinement to the cool and ultra-pure red and dark berry fruit aromas that evidence traces of earth and wood spice. There is superb intensity to the tension-filled, detailed and mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract on the notably firm, moderately austere and beautifully long finish. This should also reward longer-term cellaring but is sufficiently forward that it could be approached young as well. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2021+



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. There is a distinct marine/seaweed element on the nose of Esmonin’s Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St Jacques 2011 that is well defined and shows impressive focus and intensity. It gains harmony and intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, the oak a little more pronounced here than Bruno Clair’s, but with fine tension and a pleasing edgy, peppery razor-sharp finish that lingers long in the mouth. Don't overlook this exemplary Clos Saint Jacques. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
