The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques (Domaine Louis Jadot) is shaping up brilliantly, wafting from the glass with aromas of raspberries and plums mingled with sweet spices, orange rind and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and concentrated, it's bright and precise, with a layered core of fruit and a long, penetrating finish.
Excellent full red colour. The bouquet really grows on me from a discreet start. A weight of more than raspberry, but without the extra acidity of loganberry, very juicy, a little barrel toast, length over and above its predecessors, and personality too. Very fine. Tasted: November 2021
Bright ruby colour. Dark fruited with a brambly, smoky edge on the nose. This is tight and a little reticent for now but hints at much more to come. The palate builds slowly, starting with rich, ripe tannins. The fruit slowly gains pace, with dark cherry and woody herbs together. The fruit and structure are matched but still need to knit together. The finish is expansive, powerful and long. This is a wine that will reward patience, but the flourishing layers of spice and delineated fruit offer great promise.
