Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from June 23 2021

Wine: 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin "Clos St. Jacques"

Producer: Domaine Sylvie Esmonin

Comment: A pungent nose is composed today of wood toast and reduction. Otherwise there is excellent precision to the rich, intense and mineral-driven flavors that are shaped by firm but ripe tannins and outstanding length on the linear and driving finish. This is still very primary and somewhat hard to judge at present but given the impeccable track record of this wine, I am reasonably confident that it will come together.

Score: 91-93 Drink: 2026+
