"OUTSTANDING. As is usually the case this is more aromatically elegant than the Cazetiers even though the two parcels all but touch one another. A restrained nose of plum and red currant liqueur slides gracefully into delicious, intense and wonderfully refined medium weight flavors that brim with both minerality and plenty of mouth coating dry extract before terminating in a driving and beautifully textured finish that displays strikingly good length. This is a wine of class and harmony."

"Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St Jacques from Bruno Clair has a delightful, extremely pure bouquet with raspberry and wild strawberry scents with delicate floral notes. The palate is tensile on the entry, tightly wound, bright and lively though it just attenuates a little towards the finish. There is a prettiness about this understated Clos Saint Jacques that keeps you coming back for another sip."
