Reduction renders the nose difficult to properly assess but there is good verve and intensity to the well-delineated and strongly mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that display a bit of wood toast. Like the Gevrey villages there is a lovely sense of underlying tension on the overtly austere, dry and clean finish that evidences outstanding depth and length. This is still very tight and compact but the material and balance are present to allow this to really blossom over the next 12 to 15 years. *Outstanding*
The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux-Saint-Jacques boasts incredible depth, richness and sheer texture. It is impeccably layered from start to finish, with generous red fruit, licorice and spices, all of which take shape beautifully in the glass. The aromas and flavors build gracefully to the huge, multi-dimensional finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030. (AG)
Medium red. Reduced, slightly animal nose. Bright but tight, with a medicinal cast to the dark fruit and mocha flavors. Finishes a bit inky, with substantial tannins and a hint of dryness. Hard to taste today as it finished its malo recently; in fact, the third of three barrels still had some remaining malic acidity at the time of my visit. (ST)
