Louis Jadot 2001 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques

MBF shared this one from his vast cellar: and what a beauty! Elegant but with power with lifted aromas of  red berry fruit intermingling with earth and forest floor notes.  The palate mirrors the nose with abundant dark cherries and is silky smooth with a seamless long, long finish. A perfectly balanced wine of elegance to linger over. It has aged graciously in perfect cellaring conditions.
