Professional Reviews For This Wine

Burghound | Rating: 92-95

Here the nose is decidedly fresher with ripe, expressive and dense red berry fruit nuanced with ample Gevrey earth that continues onto the rich, full and very vibrant flavors that are delicious and built to age, culminating in a hugely long finish that does a slow build from the mid-palate on back. This is as good a young Jadot Clos St. Jacques as I can remember in some time. In short, there is formidable potential here.

($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.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92-94

The Jadot 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques smells of black cherry, charred beef, high-toned cherry pit and almond as well as of an alkaline and wet stone minerality. It has density and real grip on the palate, displaying low-toned meatiness and smoky, stony, salty minerality in its long finish. And for all of this wine's manifest extract and tannin, it displays a flattering creaminess of texture that few of Jadot's wines possess. Jacques Lardiere has once again presided over a collection for the most part not intended to flatter in its youth, but rather to achieve an eventual balance of fruit acidity with (in this instance frequently quite prominent) tannin. Prolonged post-fermentative extraction promoted a formidably-structured group of wines, which Lardiere expressed no hurry about bottling. Certain of these - particularly from the Cote de Beaune - displayed a slightly drying finishing astringency or simply an austere lack of charm to match their concentration, traits Lardiere suggested might be traceable to drought stress in those sites. A brief July rain that reached the Cote de Nuits but not the Cote de Beaune was critical, he asserts, and all of Jadot's vines in the northern Cote were picked before the harvest in the south commenced.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

A pure, refined red, displaying black cherry, plum and chocolate flavors. It's packed with sweet fruit, which disguises the fine tannins emerging by the finish. An added dimension of nutmeg and sweet spices linger. 140 cases imported.

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.

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.

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
