griotte jacques

1999 Véronique Drouhin, Vosne 1er Petits Montstry to find this wine...
An understated nose that slowly builds power in the glass – exotic hardwoods and faint chocolate mix to give a very complex impression. The palate is relatively tight, the faintly astringent tannin being well covered by the understated fruit – the length of finish is rather more distinguished. Despite the tight presentation there is good focus here – better than the last bottle.
Rebuy – Yes

2001 Fourrier, Gevrey 1er Clos St.Jacquestry to find this wine...
A lovely fine and elegant nose of quite some complexity – red fruits and earth. The palate is long, faintly mineral and very wide in the mid-palate and into the finish. Perhaps a little unruly – let’s say over-exuberant as it finishes but much complexity here too. An impressive and characterful wine.
Rebuy – Yes

2001 Fourrier, Griotte-Chambertintry to find this wine...
After the Clos St.Jacques the aromatics are of deeper, tighter but also softer red fruit. The palate is more concentrated but significantly simpler, though covers the faintly astringent tannin very well. A smoothly long finish. At this stage it is deceptively simple and ‘cute’ after the CSJ – but such is Griotte. Still a lovely wine.
Rebuy – Yes

    That’s a Rousseau Clos St Jacques.
