Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 30/06/2004
Copious quantities of spicy black cherries explode from the glass of the 2002 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques. Medium-bodied, complex, and deep, this is a truly delicious wine. Its satin-textured personality coats the taster’s palate with boisterous dark cherry, cinnamon, spicy oak, and blackberry flavors that linger in its extensive finish. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017.

Allen Meadows

An expressive and still almost entirely primary nose of superbly complex, ripe and elegant earthy red and black fruit aromas is followed by round, dense and mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that display excellent intensity from the mid-palate all the way to the lengthy and sappy backend. This is very sappy and completely coats and stains the palate with dusty tannins and a finish that lasts and lasts. Just as the cask sample was, this remains a very impressive effort that is still 3 to 6 years away from its peak though it could certainly be enjoyed now if desired. Drink: Try from 2014+
