1995 Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques

Louis Jadot

flagBurgundy / France

The spectacular Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St. Jacques (one of the best Premier Cru vineyards) reveals aromatics and flavors that are reminiscent of Chateau Rayas. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits intense scents of spicy, super-ripe black cherries, plums and cassis fruit as well as exceptionally powerful sweet blackberry and mocha flavors. This full-bodied, zesty wine will be at its best between 2002-2012.||This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy in Washington, D.C. in April. The wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Pinot Noir, a fragile varietal, reacts poorly to fining, filtration, and careless bottling techniques, I recommend caution when considering buying a red burgundy based on cask samples. I called it as I tasted it, and hope the bottled wine reflects the quality of the samples I was provided.||Overall, 1995 is another in a string of successful vintages for Jadot. If there is one negociant house consumers can feel comfortable buying blindly, vintage to vintage, it is Jadot. Wine Advocate.June, 1997
