The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques has a perfumed bouquet with attractive rose petal scents filtering through the red cherries and wild strawberry aromas, the wood neatly integrated. The palate is well balanced with plenty of sucrosity on the entry: layers of red cherry, strawberry and a potent spiciness that flow out towards the finish. This is a significant level up for the village cru and is absolutely delicious.(NM)
Here there is a bit more elegance to the red and dark cherry aromas that are liberally laced with earth, humus and game wisps. This too has a lovely sense of vibrancy and a finer mouth feel despite the presence of a taut muscularity to the medium-bodied flavors that also display event minerality on the notably more complex and persistent finish. This will need up to a decade of aging to arrive at its apogee.
On the other hand, the 2015 Lavaux St. Jacques chez Rousseau was absolutely singing at the time of my visit, offering up a beautifully pure, sappy aromatic constellation of red plums, cherries, a touch of grilled meats, raw cocoa, a whisper of vanillin oak and a pungent topnote of roses. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with lovely transparency, fine-grained tannins and outstanding length and grip on the vibrant and utterly seamless finish. A marvelous Lavaux! 2023-2060.
Bright red. Pungent aromas of cranberry, pomegranate and rose petal. Densely packed but in a distinctly cooler style, with its red berry flavors accented by menthol and spices. This fine-grained, saline, mineral-driven wine finishes youthfully tight, with a firm spine of dusty tannins. Rousseau picked this fruit last, on September 10.(ST)
