Good full deep red. Lovely tangy perfume of cherry raspberry red licorice fresh herbs rose petal and spicy oak. Dense sweet and fine with an obvious new oak element nicely carried by the wine's concentration of fruits... Good full deep red. Lovely tangy perfume of cherry raspberry red licorice fresh herbs rose petal and spicy oak. Dense sweet and fine with an obvious new oak element nicely carried by the wine's concentration of fruits and flowers. Offers an uncanny combination of seamless texture and power. Most impressive today on the firmly structured slowly building finish which features fine-grained tannins and a complex saline and spice perfume. A beauty.

Discreet but not invisible wood spice adds breadth to the otherwise perfumed elegant and ultra-pure stone-infused red berry fruit nose that is also quite fresh within the context of the vintage. The detailed and strikingly intense medium-bodied flavors exude dry extract that effectively pushes the firm tannic spine to the background on the palate staining and massively long finish. This powerful effort is a potentially a great Clos St. Jacques that rivals its 2005 counterpart at the same stage of its development.

The 2009 Clos St. Jacques is a rich deeply pitched wine built on a serious core of dark red fruit menthol spices and licorice. Readers won't find much of the early appeal of 2009 here rather this is a wine built for the cellar. Layers of flavor build to a huge finish supported by considerable tannin. This intense powerful wine is going to require quite a bit of patience. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.-Antonio Galloni
