Very good, and delicious, but not a great CSJ.

Lovely dark fruit. Fresh and supple. All dark stuff with games tangy notes. This is a great and classic bottle. Usually the WOTN, but alongside the Chambertin and the Beze it seems a touch simple. However this is fucking awesome. It’s just a tad shorter

The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru is blessed with a bouquet of real pedigree: very complex mixture of red and black brambly fruit, sous-bois, crushed stone and rose petal aromas. The harmony and delineation is outstanding. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, pliant tannins that lend this Clos Saint-Jacques symmetry and poise. Fresh and vibrant, it never relinquishes any of its breeding and tension. The finish is persistent and utterly captivating. Fabulous. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.

Light tawny color. Great nose. Notes of cherry, rhubarb, dried flowers, brown spice, earth and gravel. Refined in the mouth. A bit tight, even with many hours of air. Yet great balance and class in the mouth and finish. We got more and more excited about this wine as it got into hours 6 and 7... it needed the air to blossom.

Gorgeous, exotic nose of wild flower, hung game, roasted coffee, smoke and beef jerky.

This is something special- very lifted bright red fruit. Underbrush, tangy blue fruit, herbal notes. Very translucent and delicious. Gorgeous.

Fresh and bright red fruit, soft cherry, tension and brightness. On the palate lovely supple fruit. Long and very pretty.

Bright cherry and blue fruit with a hint of black pepper. Medium bodied and pure. Slightly sour and tangy with green pepper notes. Probably needs time.
