2011 Red Burgundy: Three Sides of a Coin (Mar 2014)

Jadot’s 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques is wonderfully perfumed and weightless in the glass, with structure that is implied rather than overtly stated at this stage. Sweet red berries, hard candy, flowers, mint and anise all meld together in the glass. The 2011 is super-refined and striking in its balance. A suggestion of dried rose petals adds nuance on the seductive finish. There is a lot to look forward to here.
