The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques has an extremely pure bouquet with wild strawberry, raspberry preserve and subtle orange blossom aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is extremely smooth and harmonious, almost filigree tannin with wonderful poise on the understated yet paradoxically intense finish that lingers in the mouth, with a tang of orange rind on the aftertaste. This represents an outstanding Lavaux Saint-Jacques that should surpass the 2015—just glorious!
This is aromatically similar to the straight Gevrey villages cuvée though with much better complexity. There is also more size, weight and intensity to the stony and muscular medium weight flavors that possess a sleek mouthfeel, all wrapped in a precise, lingering and youthfully austere finale. This will also definitely need at least some time in bottle before it will be approachable.
Healthy bright red. Enticing floral and minty high notes to the aromas of raspberry and cranberry. More imploded than the two village wines but still quite pliant and fruity, conveying an attractive restrained sweetness as well as a juicy, cool character. Captivating flavors of red fruits, spices and flowers are enlivened by underlying crushed-stone minerality. This very suave, sexy wine spreads out on the back end, finishing with a fine dusting of tannins and sneaky subtle length.
