($125) Deep red. The nose offers an essence of Clos Saint-Jacques: raspberry, cherry, rose petal, minerals and smoke, plus a whiff of fresh leather. Wonderfully sweet but at the same time sharply delineated, conveys a nearly saline impression of extract. An ineffable floral element provides captivating inner-mouth perfume. Utterly seamless wine that finishes with perfectly harmonious tannins and palate-staining aromatic character. This is too sexy now but I'm not complaining.

Intense and deep flavoured, with hints of kirsch and still some fine oak too. Very serious and long term. Very find tannins there in abundance. Long and well constituted. Pretty impressive! Long and with lovely freshness on the finish.

Syrupy aroma of strawberry, dates, apple and honey. The aroma was sweet and seductive. The wine has good mouth feel, nice weight and intensity, with good fruit purity on the palate. The fruit flavors on the palate, however, are not as apparent as what the aroma would suggest. The wine on the palate felt like it had a nice coolness in the middle, with some dark character or fruit surrounding it. About a 20 second finish, decent. The wine could use more polish and complexity, and also, could use more decanting or bottle age to show more. Decanting only about 2 hours were not enough for this.

Was either never accessible or went into lockdown for a long snooze. Intense, medicinal, slightly bitter. Long, persistent finish, though. Elements for a great bottle are there, but I won't peak for 5 years+. Educational exercise and a good lesson regarding young Jadot wines.
