A more deeply pitched and notably more complex nose is comprised by both red and dark currant, sauvage, earth and a soft touch of humus. There is excellent detail to the mineral-inflected and tension-filled medium-bodied flavors that possess very fine depth and length on the balanced finale. This is very Gevrey in character and this should reward up to a decade of bottle age.
The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St Jacques, which comes from two parcels since last year (one from the Château de Gevrey), has a light but pure nose: raspberry preserve and fresh strawberry. The palate is well balanced with sappy, red berry fruit, gentle grip with appreciable density on the finish. This bodes well for the future and may equal the Clos Saint Jacques. (NM)
The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaut St. Jacques is quite supple on the palate, yet it also offers lovely energy and verve. The flavors are nicely layered and perfumed throughout, with hints of hard candy, sweet herbs and leather that add nuance on the close. (AG)
Bright, dark red. Medicinal red cherry complicated by leather and underbrush on the nose. Sappy, crunchy red fruit flavors show good energy and lift. Finishes with serious but sweet tannins and lingering saline minerality. This cuvée has shown increasing depth in recent vintages. (ST)
Firm crimson. Fresh mossy nose. With a hint of black pepper. Very juicy fruit on the palate. Really quite open and, at this stage, a bit simple. Polished and very unfinished but clean and pure. Quite long. (17+/20 points)
