Blind Vision: 2015 Burgundy Red & White (Nov 2018)

The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques 1er Cru has the most intense and opaque bouquet of the quintet from this vineyard and easily the most modern in style, presenting a mixture of well-defined dark cherry, blueberry and violet aromas. The palate is chewy and concentrated on the entry and very dense, with much more new oak in evidence compared to its peers, then sweet and candied with citrus-like notes toward the long finish. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
