BurghoundAgain, very generous wood fights somewhat with the otherwise pretty, cool, ripe and airy combination of menthol, soil tones, stone hints and various wild red berry fruit aromas. There is excellent mid-palate concentration to the serious and brooding medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine minerality on the robust, powerful and very firm finish. This is less refined than it typically is and is distinctly muscular. Still, if you have the patience to wait, this should amply reward extended cellar time. 90-93
Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint Jacques has another bouquet influenced by the sea - well-defined with crisp delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins. There is a little hardness here at the moment that will need several years to soften, although there is focus and freshness on the finish. Perhaps a little foursquare at the moment, it is a wine that will need patience to come around. Drink 2016-2025+
