Tasting Notes

Slightly more subtle, though still moderately prominent, wood sets off the very spicy, cool and elegant aromas that consist mostly of red and dark currant and iron-inflected earth. There is very good volume and verve suffusing the refined and classy middle weight flavors that brim with minerality and dry extract where the latter helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine shaping the compact, powerful and strikingly long finale. This excellent effort will likely need a minimum of 10 years before it can be reasonably approached and should reward up to 20 years of keeping.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (82), April 2021

The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques (Domaine Louis Jadot) is very promising, wafting from the glass with aromas of raspberries, cherries, warm spices, candied peel, rose petals and smoke. Medium to full-bodied, layered and muscular, with serious concentration and rich reserves of ripe, powdery tannin, it concludes with a bright, precise finish.

Medium deep red with some plummy notes. There is a depth to the fruit here though, with a plumpness to it that is really pleasing, before the more nuanced style of Clos St-Jacques begins to emerge. Tasted: October 2020

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, December 2020

The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru is surprisingly reticent at first, offering quite strong earthy aromas and gradually opening with sage, thyme and mint. I feel that compared to the other Clos Saint-Jacques, the aromatics never quite click into fifth gear. The palate is medium-bodied with the best backbone of the four Gevrey Premier Crus tasted from Jadot. Spicy black pepper and clove notes furnish the middle and the finish, which feels sustained and persistent, yet I wonder whether it will have the unadulterated charm of the Les Cazetiers when in bottle. We will find out soon.

Vibrant ruby colour. Deep, spicy and full on the nose, fragrant but also brooding - really excellent. The palate is full and soft on entry, revealing a myriad red and black fruit. Clarity of structure, with pristine and ripe tannins perfectly and fully framing the intense fruit. This mouthcoating depth persists through to a very long and complex finish that broadens with time. Chalky, and very long, this will need time but has excellent balance.
