    Winemaker's Notes:

    A fine, elegant, full bodied wine. It is a structured and complex wine with a deep color, developing aromas of blackcurrant and other small red and black berries. Distinguished tannins. A wine to age.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Estournelles Saint Jacques bursts from the glass with layers of dark fruit. Black cherries, flowers, mint and sweet spices wrap around the palate in this flashy, extroverted wine. The Estournelles Saint Jacques turns a bit more feminine in the glass, yet it remains exuberant, flashy and full of life. This isn't the last word on subtlety, but it is a delicious wine in its own way. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.
    Range: 92-94

    Good medium red. Brilliantly pure aromas of raspberry, crushed stone, rose petal and blood orange; showing the Chambolle side of this great premier cru. Dense, concentrated and sweet on the front half, then a bit tougher toward the back, showing a distinctly medicinal aspect. This powerfully structured, youthfully imploded wine will need at minimum of five or six years of bottle aging.
    Range: 90-93

    This is much toastier and the wood fights somewhat with the otherwise cool, pretty and airy aromas of cassis, plum and red currant that are laced with lovely wet stone scents. There is good richness to the detailed, intense and energetic middle weight flavors that possess plenty of backend punch on the youthfully austere finish. This clearly offers very solid quality though as good as it is, it's not quite at the same level as the other Gevrey 1ers in this range.
    Barrel Sample: 89-92
