Wine Critic Reviews for 2010 Louis Jadot Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques

(Gevrey-Chambertin “Clos St. Jacques”- Maison Louis Jadot) The Jadot Clos St. Jacques vines are now fully fifty years of age and they certainly picked an outstanding vintage with 2010 to celebrate their “golden anniversary”. The bouquet is flat out stunning, offering up a very pure and primary blend of sappy black cherries, cassis, grilled meat, woodsmoke, espresso and a magically complex base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very elegant on the attack, with a sappy core, beautiful soil inflection, glorious complexity and plenty of suave tannins perking up the very, very long and tangy finish. A brilliant wine. (Drink between 2020-2075)

Clos Saint-Jacques is located in the north of Gevrey-Chambertin. This is a structured, powerful wine, with plenty of firm tannins in its youth. It's full of ripe red fruit, and it needs to age for many years.

The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru (magnum) has a very intense bouquet with more concentration and darker fruit than the 2009, offering blackberry, bilberry, oyster shell and pressed iris flowers. The medium-bodied palate features gentle grip, wonderful substance and a surfeit of tart red berry fruit. It is slightly grainy in texture with hints of black truffle on the finish. This improves with aeration and develops a wonderful peppery note with time. A Clos Saint-Jacques built for the long haul.

The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos-Saint-Jacques is all about finesse and seamless beauty. A refined, aristocratic Burgundy, the Clos Saint-Jacques is endowed with the silkiest of tannins and flat-out beauty from start to finish. The wine fleshes out on the palate with layers of red berries, flowers and licorice that gain volume and breadth with time in the glass. There is plenty of brightness and minerality to lend a gorgeous element of vibrancy on the close. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.

I tasted an amazing range of 2010 reds at Jadot with long-term winemaker Jacques Lardiere and his successor Frederic Barnier. In order to make this large section of the report easier to read, I have broken up the wines into the Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits. Lardiere and Barnier told me they were quite worried about the prospects for the harvest upon their return from summer vacations in August, but the year was saved by a perfect September. Yields are down 25-50% because of the frost and cold weather earlier in the year, but overall quality is very high. Lardiere and Barnier also noted that early on it appeared that there would be a wide gap in quality between the Cote de Beaune and the Cote de Nuits, but over time that gap narrowed to some extent. Still, there is little question the vintage was more challenging in the Cote de Beaune because of a rainier summer and overall higher precipitation throughout the year.

(Maison Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin "Clos St. Jacques" 1er 1er Cru Red) The stunningly complex nose is broadly similar to that of the Cazetiers except that here it's noticeably more refined and perhaps a bit more mineral-inflected as well. There is dazzling precision and intensity to the mineral-driven, linear and gorgeously vibrant flavors that possess the same remarkably depth of the nose while culminating in an explosive, linear and poised finish that deliver huge length. I very much like the sense of harmony and refinement and this is really quite Zen-like. (Drink starting 2025)

More Information
Producer Louis Jadot
Region Burgundy: Situated just west of the beautiful river Saone, the hills and valleys of Burgundy stand as they have stood since medieval times, and you can almost hear the cheerful chatter of vineyard workers from miles away. Indeed, France's identity in the world of wine would be incomplete without the inclusion of Burgundy and its many viticultural achievements. Every little sub-region of the area boasts a unique soil composition, which, when combined with the area's climate conditions, creates an incredibly diverse and appealing selection of fine wines.

Every new bottle is an adventure of its own, and a snapshot of its birthplace. You could spend years sampling great Burgundian wines, and you would still have a lot to learn, which is what makes the region so compelling for veterans and novice wine lovers alike. No matter what your taste in wines may be, there is a winery in Burgundy that could mesmerize your mind and make your senses scream with joy. And what better way to spend a comfy summer afternoon with your friends and family than with a classy bottle from some of the region's most reputable wineries? From the noble slopes of Cote d'Or to the flatlands near various settlements, let us help you on your journey as we explore Burgundy's most delicious and renowned wines.
Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
