One of the 26 Premiers Crus of Gevrey-Chambertin, Estournelles Saint Jacques lies on a steep, southeastern slope with calcareous clay soils that bear a similarity to the soils of nearby Grands Crus. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in vats for up to 4 weeks, and then the wine is matured 15 months in oak barrels before bottling.
