This vintage includes 60% whole bunch fruit. There was a lot of reduction on the nose as Sylvie forewarned so we will have to bypass the aromatics. On the palate there is much more expression. What strikes you is the sheer untrammelled energy contained in this Clos Saint-Jacques that immediately revivified the senses. It feels extremely harmonious, the new oak holding a sway upon the final third at the moment but given the requisite bottle age then that will be assimilated. As usual, it is a Clos Saint-Jacques that leans more towards black than red fruit (à la Rousseau or Fourrier) but there is great precision and length in situ.- NM collapse

The bouquet is driven by a lot of new oak (indicating that it is probably from Sylvie Esmonin), though there is sufficient fruit to support it. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins, very structured and with dense red fruit that grips the mouth. There is fine sapidity towards the finish and although it is, as usual, the most impenetrable of the Clos Saint-Jacques, give it 15 to 20 years in bottle. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. -- Neal Martin collapse

A pungent nose is composed today of wood toast and slightly reduction so be sure to decant this if you can't resist opening a bottle. Otherwise there is excellent precision to the rich, intense and mineral-driven flavors... expand A pungent nose is composed today of wood toast and slightly reduction so be sure to decant this if you can't resist opening a bottle. Otherwise there is excellent precision to the rich, intense and mineral-driven flavors that are shaped by firm but ripe tannins and outstanding length on the linear and driving finish. This is a markedly ripe and quite powerful 2016 that is going to need plenty of cellar time. collapse
