Shows a lot of finesse and elegance, with a bright cherry fruit, abundant floral notes and enough freshness to carry it through to a rewarding conclusion. The house owns nearly one hectare in Lavaux St-Jacques. In 2020, the fruit was picked at 13.5% and fermented with a good proportion of whole clusters before being run into cask (38% new) for ageing. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040.
A mentholated top note is present on the aromas of kirsch, black cherry and distinct earth scents. There is more volume, mid-palate concentration and muscle to the larger-scaled flavors that are at once impressively rich yet well-delineated on the dusty, serious and built-to-age finale. This is very impressive. *Burghound Sweet Spot Outstanding!*
The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux Saint-Jacques 1er Cru offers impressive, delineated redcurrant and cranberry fruit on the nose, not powerful, but neat and precise. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, quite fleshy and Chambolle-like. Slightly granular in texture towards the marine-tinged finish, I would give this 2-3 years in bottle. Very fine.
The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques unfurls to reveal aromas of dark berries, rose petals, exotic spices and violets. Medium to full-bodied, layered and complete, with terrific concentration, lively acids and beautifully refined tannins, this is especially promising this year. Jérôme Flous told me that he began harvest on August 19, and he was as pleased with the wines as he was taken aback by their vibrancy and saturated hues. It's a terrific set of wines for Faiveley, with lower alcohol and lower pHs than in 2019 but with incredible concentration and purity. Everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended
