Tasting Notes

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru has a wonderful bouquet that just pips the Cazetiers for precision and poise. This is detailed and very finely tuned, the oak married perfectly with the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and very well-judged acidity, almost sorbet-fresh. The vivacious blood-orange-infused finish seems to shimmer. This is a great Clos Saint-Jacques from Louis Jadot.

94/96
Neal Martin, vinous.com, January 2020

More discreet but hardly invisible wood sets off the equally pure and very pretty nose that consists of liqueur-like red berry fruit, pungent earth, floral and sauvage wisps. The sleek, beautifully delineated and punchy medium-bodied flavors reveal ample minerality on the focused if youthfully austere finish that is shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins. This is a CSJ of focused power and what should prove to be a long potential aging curve.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (78), April 2020

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques (Domaine Louis Jadot) is a beautiful wine in the making, revealing an incipiently complex bouquet that mingles aromas of smoky berry fruit, cassis and orange rind with nuances of peony, espresso roast, rich soil tones and black truffle. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, with excellent concentration, fine structuring tannins that are largely concealed by the wine's wealth of fruit and a long, perfumed finish.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate (Jan 20 Wee), January 2020

Beautifully perfumed nose with roses, strawberries and a creamy lick of vanilla. Beautiful mouthfeel, very elegant and quite tightly wound but complex and intense at the same time. Amazingly well balanced. Excellent.
