Tasting Notes

♥ OUTSTANDING - BURGHOUND | There is lovely ripeness and a clear sense of refinement to the ripe yet cool red berry liqueur and stone aromas. The delicious and mineral-inflected medium weight flavors display ample verve and good mid-palate density that mostly buffers the firm but well-integrated tannic spine, all wrapped in a gorgeously persistent and ever-so-mildly austere finish. This should be a classic Clos St. Jacques with 12 to 15 years of bottle age though have the advantage of being accessible after only 6 to 8 years, which is unusual for this wine.
