2010 Domaine Louis Jadot (Andre Gagey) Clos-St-Denis Grand Cru

SKU #1114277 96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium-deep red. Multidimensional, slightly high-toned aromas and flavors of sappy cherry, allspice, rose petal and blood orange. Silky and creamy in an old-vine way yet almost magically penetrating too thanks to powerful minerality. This savory, dense wine saturates the mouth with perfume and the extremely long finish stains the palate with spice oils and crushed stone. Almost shockingly approachable for young Clos Saint-Denis, but this wine has the concentration, balance and structure for a long life in bottle. (ST) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This firm, tannic wine is made from fruit sourced from a vineyard in the heart of Morey-Saint-Denis. It's a solid selection, and it has enormous potential. The ripe black-cherry and plum flavors are dominated by the tannins. Concentrated, this is ready for long-term aging. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Clos Saint Denis comes across as seamless and impeccable from start to finish. It is an effortless, graceful wine that defines the essence of what makes Grand Cru Burgundy Grand Cru. It literally hovers on the palate with impeccable class and personality. The Clos Saint Denis was made with 100% whole clusters, which comes through in the wine’s personality, especially on the finish. (AG) 94-96+ Inner quote mark (2/2012)

95 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The Gagey family’s parcel of Clos St. Denis is planted with eighty year-old vines, and these old vines have performed beautifully in this great vintage. The beautiful nose soars from the glass in a classy mélange of red plums, cherries, raw cocoa, mustard seed, wonderfully complex soil tones, cloves and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with a sappy core of fruit, tangy acids, laser-like focus and stunning complexity on the moderately tannic and perfectly poised finish. This is a brilliant bottle of Clos St. Denis in the making. Inner quote mark (11/2011)

93-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark (From 90+ year old vines that are worked by horse). In contrast to the nose of the Clos de la Roche, this is notably more floral and more elegant with ripe yet higher-toned aromas of essence of red pinot fruit that combines with subtle spice and warm earth nuances. There is a velvety mouth feel yet good precision to the wonderfully rich flavors that possess a high level of phenolic maturity before terminating in a refined, pure and delicately balanced finish. An exercise in harmony and grace. In two words, absolutely stunning. Inner quote mark (4/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Silky and detailed, with fleeting aromas of rose, wild berry and Asian spices. Medium-weight, offering a gossamer texture, this retains a firm backbone of tannins. The fine, spicy length shows balance and promise. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2013)
