jadot 2001 gevrey clos st.jacques

I was a bit concerned before I even poured the wine – the cork was a nightmare to remove; welded into the neck, the second half (!) needing both ah-so and screwpull-worm in the manner of a 1970s wine – except I was having to tug more.

2001 Louis Jadot, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos St.Jacques
The nose had a slightly burning, alcoholic top-note, below is a diffuse but deep layer of red fruit, augmented by occasional leafy aromas. The palate, whilst silky smooth, only serves to move you along the conveyor to the mid-palate, there waiting for you is a shrill mid-palate that whilst intense is not all that nice. Long but bitter finishing. I remember this being much, much better last time, though admittedly that was 4 years ago. I can only assume that cork must have have been the culprit!
Rebuy – No

    Hello Bill,
    This is too sad… It should be the cork, because the wine is still very nice. We are waiting your next time in burgundy to open (and drink) a bottle.
    We still have some 2001 in our cellar and they are showing good now.
