Moderate wood stops short of masking the nuances of the cool, spicy and floral-suffused aromas of mostly red cherry and exotic tea. The vibrant and caressing medium-bodied flavors are finer still thanks to the dense but fine tannins shaping the sneaky long and balanced finale. This too could use better depth, but the Jadot CSD has an established track record of developing more with age.
Pure and elegant, the 2021 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru (Domaine Gagey) opens in the glass with aromas of sweet red berries, cherries, rose petals, spices and raw cocoa. Full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with lively acids, powdery tannins and a long, saline finish, it has turned out beautifully.
