Domaine Bruno Clair Gevrey Chambertin Clos Saint Jacques 2014

SKU 1626


The Clos Saint-Jacques is worked by five wine growers. Each owns a plot which extends upwards on the slope and this brings a great balance to the wines. The vines of our plot are particularly remarkable, thanks to the "massale" (visual selection of the most robust vineplants) made by my father more than 30 years ago. Half of the plot was planted in 1957, the other part in 1972. The vines are of an astonishing qualitative regularity there. Le Clos Saint-Jacques always produces a fine, complex wine to keep.

Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St Jacques has a stunning, pure, life-affirming bouquet that is just pure class and delivers exactly what you expect from a vineyard of this caliber (and price!). The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, pure red berry fruit tinged with spice and a hint of Seville orange marmalade. The tannins are filigree and the harmony toward the finish makes you giddy. This is a fabulous Clos Saint Jacques from Bruno Clair that challenges Rousseau as the pick of the five growers this year. Tasted September 2017.
