1990 Domaine Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Clos St. Jacques"

SKU #1048126 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Jadot, which has major holdings in the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, has turned out some stunning wines at the premier cru level. It produced a profound Gevrey-Chambertin-Clos St.-Jacques. Andre Gagey, who, along with his son, Pierre-Henri, and their winemaker, Jacques Lardiere, participated in the tasting, announced he had put considerable quantities of this particular wine in his cellar to "help get him through his retirement." The color is a saturated dark ruby. The nose explodes from the glass, offering a melange of scents, including black-raspberries, toasty new oak, cloves, vanilla, and candy. In the mouth, there is astonishing richness, a thick, well-defined texture, and a flamboyant, moderately tannic finish that lasts well over a minute. The personality hallmarks of the 1990 vintage, the chewy, super-ripe character of the Pinot Noir and terrific richness, are beautifully displayed in this wine. Inner quote mark (10/1992)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark The highly expressive nose has now turned completely secondary, indeed there are hints of sous bois to the beautifully complex, ripe and layered earth, stone and underbrush aromas. There is excellent richness and equally good depth to the seductively textured and mineral-driven flavors that display the classic elegance and refinement of a fine Clos St. Jacques, all wrapped in a delicious, seductive and strikingly persistent finish. I have enjoyed the '90 CSJ many times and it only seems to get better and better and I must say that this most recent bottle is the best that I have ever tried. Perhaps more importantly, it should continue to drink well for many years to come, perhaps even for several more decades. Inner quote mark (7/2012)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Round, smooth and quite decadent, with lots of flavors--earth, mushroom, berry and cedar--adding excitement to this medium-bodied, elegant wine. Inner quote mark (12/1992)
