Glowing crimson purple. Very sensual succulent sweet red fruit, hedonistic rather than over the top. The ripeness of the vintage adds a layer over and above the raw silk of Clos St-Denis, which is still the wine’s fundamental character. Firm, structured. Pretty ripe fruit actually. A few whole bunches have been included here, perhaps to tame the exuberance. Tasted: October 2020

The 2019 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru demonstrates a little more amplitude than the Clos de la Roche because of the one-third stem addition. It is exquisitely defined, offering precise black fruit laced with melted tar and graphite notes, and wonderful focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins framing the judiciously spiced black fruit that segues into a very harmonious, grippy finish. This is one of Jadot’s best cuvées this vintage.

The 2019 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru (Domaine Gagey) offers up notes of cherries, red berries, rose petals, raw cocoa, espresso roast and sweet soil tones. Full-bodied, layered and muscular, it's rich and dramatic, with an enveloping core of fruit and ripe, refined tannins.
