Louis Jadot Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  444919

An exuberantly spicy, fresh and ripe nose speaks of red berry fruit liqueur, plum, anise and clove plus discreet mineral nuances that are set off by enough wood to warrant mentioning. The powerful and sleekly muscular flavors are quite firm yet there is a certain generosity that renders the mouth feel somewhat finer than that of the Clos de la Roche on the gorgeously persistent finish. It's rare that a Clos St. Denis is more structured than a Clos de la Roche (when made by the same winemaker) but that is the case here. Drink: 2036+. Don't miss! Score - 92-95.
