Tasting Notes:

95-97 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint Jacques has a very perfumed bouquet with layers of morello cherry, quince, raspberry preserve, crushed rock and elements of darker fruit that become more pronounced with aeration—blackberry and a touch of blueberry. The palate is very structured with good backbone. However, following the effervescent Ruchottes-Chamerting, this Clos Saint-Jacques is decidedly more backward and surly at the moment, although there is tremendous grip on the very saline finish. This will need more ageing in bottle than other crus, but the substance and energy is all here to create a formidable Clos Saint-Jacques. (NM)  (12/2016)

96 points Allen Meadows – Burghound

 (from a 2.2 ha parcel raised in 70% new wood). There is just enough wood present to mention but not so much as to materially detract from the attractively fresh, cool, pretty and airy red berry, earth, humus, anise and rose petal-scented aromas. The refined yet quite powerful middle weight are almost painfully intense and there is so much minerality the mouthfeel is akin to rolling small stones around in your mouth particularly so on the sappy, palate coating and hugely long finish. This too is seriously impressive and very classy. 2032+  (1/2018)

96 points Decanter

 Red fruits and cherries on the nose, but it’s very closed at present. Very rich and weighty, with formidable fruit of concentration and density. Tight and less approachable than most of the Rousseau wines, but this tension suggests a fine evolution and ageing potential. At present the tannins seems to obstruct the fruit, but that will change. Very long finish. (SB)  (2/2017)

95 points Vinous

 Bright medium red. Captivating high-pitched perfume of raspberry, cranberry and flowers; Then juicy, penetrating and youthfully tight on the palate; plenty ripe and dense, not to mention utterly seamless, but shows rare energy for the vintage, with the tart red berry and crushed-stone qualities of the vineyard lifted by an ineffable floral quality. The slowly building finish displays superb echoing length. A brilliant 2015, this may be a more classic version of this vineyard than the estate’s ’16. (ST)  (1/2018)
