Domaine Bruno Clair Gevrey Chambertin Clos Saint Jacques 2006

SKU 32417


Production has increased to 450 case a year due to the end of the rental agreement with Jadot. The deepest color in the cellar. A classy, tobacco, cigar box nose. On the palate, dark bittersweet chocolate. Jammy, very elegant fruit; gamy and classy at the same time. luscious, vibrant, perfumed peanut finish. Very pure.

Wine AdvocateSmoky, 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.

Wine SpectatorGorgeous 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.
