Palate Profile

Gevrey-Chambertin is located to the North of Côte de Nuits. It possesses 26 premiers crus and 8 grands crus. Half of the Premiers Crus surrounds the grands Crus (near Morey Saint-denis). The other half is located to the North in the Combe de Lavaux on a calcareous and clayish soil with quite a great deal of marls.

The Clos Saint Jacques vineyard is located at the beginning of the valley called Combe de lavaux. It is very nicely South-East oriented. There are only five owners of this prestigious Clos, which may have deserved the Grand Cru Appellation when the first official classification was decided.

Critic Awards

Concentrated and powerful, this wine is rich and full in the mouth, with wonderful ripe fruits over the great tannins. It is solid, dark and dense, full of smoky flavors and a rich strawberry flavor

Such pretty clarity to this with spice, dried strawberry, and wet earth too. Full-bodied, firm and chewy with bright citrus acidity and a long finish. I like the austerity with vivid fruit character. Needs a year or two to soften.

The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques has a composed bouquet with dark cherry, red plum, a light estuarine influence seeping through with aeration, all with good intensity and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, plenty of blackcurrant and raspberry fruit, tensile with a brisk and quite punchy finish.

Intense and powerful, with plum, black cherry and spice flavors flowing before giving way to dense tannins. Finishes with tobacco and mineral elements. All the components are there, but this needs time to integrate.
