Gevrey Chambertin Clos Saint Jacques, Domaine Bruno Clair 1999

Tasting Notes

Initially this showed very little but with several hours of air the nose expands to reveal plenty of Gevrey earth and a nicely complex set of aromas that have just now begun to turn toward the secondary. The round| supple and forward middle weight flavors are delicious and even more complex with a velvety texture and excellent length| all wrapped in a balanced and still moderately tannic finish. This is really quite impressive and while it could easily be enjoyed now| I would hold it for a few more years first but if you're tempted| be sure to decant it for at least an hour because it's deceptive at first glance.
