($150) Bright ruby-red. Sexy nose combines maraschino cherry, roast coffee, bitter chocolate and lively oak spices not apparent in the foregoing wines. Full, sweet and chewy in the mouth, with a silky, layered texture to buffer the wine sound acidity. Cherry and black raspberry flavors are nicely sweetened by the wine's new oak. Features a long, gripping whiplash of a finish and fine tannins that coat the entire palate.

The dark ruby-colored 1999 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques has exuberant, sweet, blackberry fruit aromas. This medium to full-bodied wine has amplitude to its mouth-coating , black cherry, oak, and cassis liqueur flavors. It is velvety-textured, lively, and boisterous.

Could almost be a grand cru. Nose starting to open, some floral notes, very refined. Still needs time.

Intense, juicy, and bright strawberry pinot aromas give way to a solid, muscular wine with great balance. Some complexity on finish with considerable airing. Beautiful wine with a great future, drinkable now but should unwind to show even more in 2-3 years
