Domaine Bruno Clair Gevrey Chambertin Clos Saint Jacques 2015

SKU 1627


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 AdvocateThe 2015 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques has a very well-defined bouquet that offers lifted redcurrant and wild strawberry aromas, interwoven with wet limestone and almost flint-like scents. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin. This is seamless and silky smooth, a Clos Saint-Jacques determined to show the other vineyards what it can do. Beautiful delineation and focus on the finish, this is an outstanding Clos Saint-Jacques from Bruno Clair that will offer 20 or 30 years of drinking pleasure.
