Scores and tasting notes
Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques from Jean-Marie Fourrier has a generous nose of brambly red fruit, a touch of sage and broom, well defined and with plenty of fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannins compared to Bruno Clair's own Clos Saint Jacques, but there is precision and character here, the terroir very expressive with superb mineralité towards the long and sustained finish, a ferrous note persistent on the aftertaste. This is a wine of tremendous transparency and it is totally engaging. Tasted September 2016.
