92pts Burghound - A mildly toasty nose reflects mostly notes of exceptionally ripe liqueur-like spiced plum, cassis, warm earth and a suggestion of sauvage character. The energetic, powerful and tautly muscular flavors possess an abundance of minerality that imparts an agreeable verve to the ever-so-austere finish that offers excellent depth and persistence. This harmonious effort could even be enjoyed young though it should also have no difficulty rewarding extended keeping.
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru includes 50% whole bunch fruit and matures in 60% new oak. It has an intense bouquet with notes of blackberry, blueberry, crushed stone and hints of graphite, the terroir showing through nicely here. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit and gentle grip. I feel the new oak taking a more backseat role compared to previous vintages, that allows the terroir to really show through on the precise finish. This is an excellent Clos Saint-Jacques from Sylvie Esmonin.Neal Martin, Vinous (January 2019)
