The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint Jacques, which will be matured in 80% new oak, has a perfumed bouquet with bright strawberry and redcurrant scents, superb delineation and minerality coming through, but only after five minutes in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with good density. I’ve tasted Clos Saint Jacques with perhaps more finesse in the past and it did not quite have that "je ne sais quoi" that the greatest vintages have demonstrated. This is a very fine Premier Cru, though this year it is outshone by a few of its Rousseau stablemates.
