"The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques has a very composed and detailed bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit, a subtle floral note of rose petal and iris. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin and a fine silver bead of acidity. It feels quite linear at the moment, strict and you could say "well behaved," though there is superb depth towards the velvety finish and a persistent minerally aftertaste. This is a very composed, complex Clos Saint-Jacques." (WA)

"(totally destemmed): Palish medium red. More subdued on the nose than the Estournelles Saint-Jacques but still with exhilarating blood orange lift to the raspberry aroma. Highly concentrated, silky, extremely youthful wine, combining outstanding breadth and inner-mouth perfume and lift. Its very intense, sharply delineated flavors of dark raspberry and crushed stone are given added punch and lift by urgent minerality. This compellingly horizontal, sappy wine finishes with utterly suave tannins and outstanding length, piquing the taste buds on the back end. Premier cru Burgundy does not get much better than this." (VM)

"Interestingly, and particularly so given the generally high level of expressiveness of many of the prior wines, this is all but mute and requires aggressive swirling to reveal ripe yet elegant and airy aromas of red currant, spice, smoke, wet stone and a hint of underbrush. There is evident refinement to the mineral-driven and caressing medium-bodied flavors that exhibit lovely delineation on the mildly austere, firm and beautifully well-balanced and lingering finale. This is very classy with a Zen-like sense of harmony." (BH)
