jadot’s 2001 clos st.jacques…


2001 Louis Jadot, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos St.Jacques
Medium, medium-plus colour. The initial aroma is of a slightly mushroomy red fruit, but slowly, slowly the fruit becomes purer and more interesting. In the mouth there’s good weight of fruit and a fine balance too – yet – there’s just a little lack of energy here – the wine is tasty though. Today, this bottle, doesn’t show any impressive ‘Clos St.Jacques-ness’ but it’s still a good wine for the price paid en-primeur – less-so for today’s market-price though.
Rebuy – Maybe

    Michel Esmonin is a great grower and producer of Clos St. Jacques and I have had many bottles which are still stellar. Could be storage? Good post.
