Customer Reviews - Derek

Derek
Born in Tours, France. Highly partial to Burgundy, also fond of Loire valley not so well known crus, occasional Bordeaux drinker, preferrably exceptionally good. Still finding my way through the maze of Californian wines. I tend to favor subtle and well balanced wines, with enough acidity, and elegant tannins.

2004 Joel Gigou "Cuvee Clos St. Jacques" Jasnières (out of stock)  
Review Date: 12-29-2009
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
An intriguing wine, of obvious noblesse; subtle and complex, high acidity, tantalizing aromas of citrus zest, (not ripe) pear, honey or beewax, combined with indeed something oceanic or briny as noted by RP. This is highly original and really good stuff ... unless of course you were looking for a buttery Chardonnay!

Good Anjou. Dense and interesting, if not super refined. Perhaps tasted too young.

Looking back, a great value. 2001 is a classic bordeaux vintage IMHO, unjustly looked down on.
