Domaine Bruno Clair Gevrey Chambertin Clos Saint Jacques 2006
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Nuits|
|Brand||Domaine Bruno Clair|
Smoky, resinous, bitter-sweet herbal, as well as blue and black fruits scent the Clair 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques, which then comes to the fine-grained, buoyant palate loaded with luscious, ripe purple plum, blueberry, and blackberry; exotic (orchid-like?) inner-mouth floral perfume; and myriad hard-to-describe intimations of things mineral. The dynamic of flavors here is extraordinarily persistent, and the longer it was open to the air, the more impressive the wine became. I would plan to follow this for at least a dozen years.
Gorgeous black cherry, blackberry and smoke notes permeate this masculine red. Grainy tannins and lively acidity offer support, and the finish is slightly dry. Best from 2010 through 2018. 60 cases imported.
