- Tasting Notes
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.

Medium red. Enticing raspberry and floral aromas. Broad, rich and sweet, with lovely delicacy to its flavors of spices, flowers and earth but not yet showing this cuvee’s typical cut and thrust. Finishes rich and persistent-but not singing today. Am I underrating this?

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.
