This superb premier cru is the most intense of Gevrey, with silky, dense black cherry and raspberry fruit flavors and aromas and seductive notes of tobacco and spice ending in a refined, complex finish.
Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint Jacques has another bouquet influenced by the sea well-defined with crisp delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins. There is a little hardness here at the moment that will need several years to soften, although there is focus and freshness on the finish. Perhaps a little foursquare at the moment, it is a wine that will need patience to come around. Drink 2016-2025+ (Aug 2013)
