Cellar Favorite: 1992-2011 Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques 1er Cru (May 2019)

The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru (magnum) has a wonderful bouquet of pure red currant, cranberry, briar and hint of wild heather. The medium-bodied palate offers fine tannin that provides good backbone, firm grip and a sense of symmetry and focus, and the finish is saline and sappy. This is like a younger brother of the 2010 Clos Saint-Jacques. Impressive for the vintage.
