Robert Parker 94-96
The 2014 Clos St Denis Grand Cru, from 55-year-old vines (more or less), has a very pure, delineated, sophisticated bouquet with captivating purity. It is actually more Clos de la Roche in style! The palate is very sensual on the entry with dark plum, sea salt and a hint of juniper berry. The tannins are fine but form a framework around the long finish, completing an impressive and delicious Clos Saint Denis from Jadot.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040
Bright, light red. Ineffable high-pitched perfume to the aromas and flavors of raspberry, rose petal, blood orange and mint. Improbably juicy, energetic and penetrating, conveying an impression of refinement and weightlessness. Finishes with outstanding rising length and pungent red fruit and floral intensity. This could hardly be more different in style from the Clos de la Roche, but then this wine is the product of Jadot’s vines and vinification.
