The color of the 2011 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St Jacques is intense and the aromas of licorice dominate. The wine is serious as well as masculine.
As a fine representation of the Gevrey terroir, the ambiance of this wine is power and elegance harmoniously blended with fine-grained tannins and an earthy, mineral core.
Burghound (BH): 89-92
"A cool, airy and very pretty aromatic profile of stony essence of red pinot fruit that is cut with the barest whiff of the sauvage gives way to impressively rich medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent volume and detail on the firm, tautly muscular and robust finish. This is combination of power and refinement and is really quite harmonious."
