About

93

"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 offers up notes of plum and high-toned red currant liqueur aromas. The delicious, intense and wonderfully refined medium weight flavors 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."
