The 2004 Clos St. Jacques is absolutely singing today, and is clearly a wine of grand cru dimension in this vintage. The nose is deep, packed with sweet fruit and beautifully balanced, as it offers up notes of red berries, black cherries, a bit of grilled meat, herb tones, kaleidoscopic minerality, coffee and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and complex, with outstanding transparency down to the soil, ripe tannins, excellent acids, and a very long, complete finish. Great stuff in the making here. (Drink between 2014-2030).
Good full red. Reticent but ripe nose is a bit more animal and less floral than usual for this vineyard. Then denser and sweeter on the palate than the nose suggests, with a chewy texture and impressive palate coverage. Very sappy, concentrated and suave, with dark cherry and mineral flavors currently in the deep background. But this offers terrific breadth for the vintage, and the tannins are fine. (ST)
There is just a touch of secondary development to the otherwise gorgeously pure and still very fresh red Pinot and raspberry fruit nose that is nuanced with hints of spice, crushed leaf and earth. There is good delineation to the supple and wonderfully complex flavors that explode on the strikingly long finish where some gas is in evidence; as such I would recommend decanting this for 20 minutes first. At to maturity, for my taste this has reached its initial inflection point where it could be drunk now with pleasure or held for another 3 to 5 years first depending on how much secondary influence you enjoy.

Very rich and intense. More winning than the 2005! Quite a bit of acidity but a nice luscious drink. 17.5/20 points (JR)
