2006 Maison Louis Jadot Clos St-Jacques 1er Cru

Approx retail $110-135. 5 owners (Rousseau, Sylvia Esmonin, Bruno Clair, Domaine Fourrier and Jadot). Clearly above all other 1er cru vineyards in Gevrey- Chambertin and many feel deserving of grands cru status. · Rough and rustic at this stage and not very giving aromatically. Medium depth of sweet, dark red fruits with noticeable oak. Needs another ten years at least. Reviewed August 23, 2012
