Louis Jadot 2016 Estournelles-Saint-Jacques, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru, France

Available:  Only one left $143.99
Size: 750.00ml
One of the 26 Premiers Crus of Gevrey-Chambertin, Estournelles Saint Jacques lies on a steep, southeastern slope with calcareous clay soils that bear a similarity to the soils of nearby Grands Crus. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in vats for up to 4 weeks, and then the wine is matured 15 months in oak barrels before bottling... Decanter gives this wine 92 Points saying, "Estournelles Saint-Jacques is an exceptional 1er Cru, and it’s a highlight of the Jadot range this year. Notes of wild berries, spice, forest floor and potpourri precede an elegant, supple wine with superb energy, a lovely line of acidity, and excellent detail and precision: its purity and focus stand out."
