Discreet but not invisible wood spice adds breadth to the otherwise perfumed, elegant and ultra-pure stone-infused red berry fruit nose that is also quite fresh within the context of the vintage. The detailed and strikingly intense medium-bodied flavors exude dry extract that effectively pushes the firm tannic spine to the background on the palate staining and massively long finish. This powerful effort is a potentially a great Clos St. Jacques that rivals its 2005 counterpart at the same stage of its development.

(aged in 75% new oak, vs. 15% for the Clos des Ruchottes and 0% for the preceding wines; the Clos de Beze and Chambertin here always get 100% new oak): Good full, deep red. Lovely tangy perfume of cherry, raspberry, red licorice, fresh herbs, rose petal and spicy oak. Dense, sweet and fine, with an obvious new oak element nicely carried by the wine's concentration of fruits and flowers. Offers an uncanny combination of seamless texture and power. Most impressive today on the firmly structured, slowly building finish, which features fine-grained tannins and a complex saline and spice perfume. A beauty.
