The third of Bruno Clair's Gevrey 1er Crus, the 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos-St.-Jacques provides a fascinating window into one of the village's undisputed top sites. Here the impression is of pure power, energy and explosiveness. Leather, cedar, smoke and spice are some of the notes that flesh out in a dark, imposing Burgundy that will require considerable patience. (AG)
A wonderfully elegant, ultra-cool and restrained nose exhibits notes of essence of herbal tea, red pinot fruit, wet stone, floral and subtle spice nuances. There is a very classy mouth feel to the intensely mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that culminate in an exceptionally refined and equally pure finish where the supporting tannins are notably finer. This is lovely stuff that will need time to develop more depth but the underlying potential certainly seems to be present.
