- Tasting Notes
Not surprisingly this is both more elegant and cooler with its expressive nose of intensely floral-suffused red berry fruit, herbal and wet stone nuances. There is a more refined mouth feel to the even more obviously mineral-driven flavors that are supported by finer grained tannins and excellent length. This is a lovely wine but not everyone will cotton to the herbal character of the nose.

Medium red. A real essence of Burgundy on the nose, combining musky red berries, dried flowers and underbrush. Silky and perfumed, with a lovely light touch and subtle intensity to the berry, cherry and violet flavors. This wonderfully pure, understated wine saturates the palate and glistens on the very long, scented finish, which is accented by a peppery nuance. Will this close up in bottle?

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St Jacques 2011 has plenty of fruit concentration on the nose with raspberry, fresh strawberry, sous-bois and woodland scents springing forth. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe tannins that lend its silky texture; good depth of fruit although missing a little delineation on the finish. Still, this has good potential and fine salinity on the finish. This is the most sensual of the Clos Saint Jacques 2011s.
