1998 Dominique Laurent, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos St.Jacques
Medium colour – a hint of salmon pink at the rim. There is a little tilled earth and a wealth of warm and eventually sharp red berries. Initially I though a suggestion of cigarette ash too, but it was transient and replaced with violets, more time brings a little dried leaf. The palate is silky-smooth, softly balanced and still betrays a suggestion of the vintage tannin – but only a suggestion. The flavours build in the mid-palate rather in the manner of a decent Lambrays vintage -subtle yet still impressive – behind remains a depth of dark, oak derived flavour but at this stage of maturity I can deal with it, even if I find it slightly distracting. Overall this is a really great Clos St.Jacques – really great! The next bottle in 3-5 years.
Rebuy – Yes

    HI,
    I HAVE TASTED FROM DOMINIQUE LAURENT HIS GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN, CLOS ST. JACQUES,
    PREMIER CRU, 2010 AND IT WAS SIMPLY FANTASTIC IN ALL CATEGORIES. TASTING WAS IN MAY 2014.
    I WOULD GIVE THIS WINE 96 POINTS ON THE ROBERT PARKER SCALE. REBUY – YES. YES.

    IT WOULD BE PLEASURABLE TO GET MORE EVALUATIONS FROM YOU ON THIS EXCEPTIONAL PRODUCER DOMINIQUE LAURENT.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
