Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques (0.375 L)
BH This has turned out somewhat better than my original assessment (see herein) with a very pretty, cool and elegant nose that displays some secondary development and only the barest trace of herbal tea on the moderately earthy red berry fruit scents. There is reasonably good volume and delineation to the middle weight flavors that offer ample minerality on the delicious and largely resolved finale where a trace of acidity arrives just at the very end. While not a stunning example of the vineyard I would certainly call this a success in the context of the vintage, which is entirely to Jadot’s credit. Note that for my taste this is drinking perfectly now though it will continue to hold for another decade. In sum, this is lovely.
