Louis Jadot Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques 2003
|Appellation||Cote de Nuits|
Wine EnthusiastA powerful, brooding wine, with huge, red fruit flavors. From one of Gevrey's most famed premier cru vineyards, high on the slope above the village, this is going to develop into a stunning wine, with the complexity and richness that is a signature of Jadot's wine.
Wine AdvocateEarthy, spicy black fruit scents are found in the 2003 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques. Highly structured and deep, this medium to full-bodied wine offers complex flavors of stony black fruits, fresh earth, blackberries, and dark cherries. Demanding patience, its tannic (yet ripe) character coats the palate, lingering for 45 seconds or more. Projected maturity: 2010-2020.
Wine SpectatorRipe, chocolate aroma, that follows through in flavor, along with plum and oak spice. This needs time to resolve its dense tannins with the fruit. Ripe, fresh finish. Best from 2007 through 2015.
