2017 Louis Jadot Gevrey Clos St-Jacques

Domaine Louis Jadot
Serious, deep, profound and soulful - as it should be. Intense and concentrated on the tongue, and a class of aromatics that is as good as Grand Cru. (NT 22/02/19)

Media Reviews

Jancis Robinson

Cask sample. Bright mid crimson. Pale rim. Really quite heady and distinctive on the nose. Attractive savoury cut on the palate but quite full bodied. This does immediately taste like grand cru weight. Masses of fruit and a little bit of bitter cherry on the end. Lightly muscular in a good way. Clean and brisk and long. 17.5 points

Neal Martin

The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru has a flamboyant bouquet of layers of brambly red fruit, undergrowth and hints of crushed stone and wilted rose petal. You could nose this all day if you had nothing better to do. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and fine acidity, demonstrating more depth than Fourrier, though perhaps not quite the same degree of transparency. Persistent and voluminous, this has the sweetest finish, but there is the structure to back it up. Excellent. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting. 93 points
