"There are two bottlings of La Jalousie at Domaine du Closel, with this particular example hailing from the second bottling, which was done in early September of 2011. As I was tasting this example at the end of October of last year, it was still a bit tight from the recent mise and I may well have underestimated the wine a touch. The bouquet is deep, complex and youthfully promising, offering up scents of green apple, grapefruit, a touch of lanolin, chalky soil tones and a lovely topnote of beeswax. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and racy, with a fine core of fruit, lovely potential with a few years bottle age, and excellent length and grip on the soil-driven and snappy finish. A lovely and quite classic bottle of Savennières in the making. 2014-2035."
