The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint Jacques was raised in 80% new oak. It has a very fragrant bouquet with pure raspberry and wild strawberry fruit interlaced with minerals, forest floor and hints of iodine. This premier cru is imbued with a sense of completeness on the nose, as if anything more would be superfluous. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins on the entry. There is real tension here from the very start: supreme focus and a brooding sense of power towards the long, insistent finish with touches licorice on the aftertaste.
70% new oak. Round and easy ? with masses underneath though not that expressive on the nose. Still lots to chew on.
