Louis Jadot Gevrey Chambertin "Lavaux St. Jacques" Premier Cru


Winemaker Notes

"Lavaux St Jacques" is situated at the beginning of the split of Combe de Lavaux, which faces the south. "La Combe" is an ancient evacuation canal and we can notice the likeness between the soil of Premier Cru (for example "Lavaux St Jacques) and Grands Crus situated on the slope (Chambertin, Mazis Chambertin...).

Gevrey Chambertin "Lavaux St Jacques" has a magnificent deep color. The smell is pure and you can find small black fruits, leather and spice aromas. Powerful and concentration go with a good tannic structure. Its lasting in the mouth is surprising.

This powerful and perfumed wine requires elaborate and strong tasting food: leg of mutton, boeuf bourguignon, stew and strong cheeses (except blue cheese).

94 Points - Vinous

Bright medium red. Pungent spicy lift to the aromas and flavors of red cherry, raspberry, crushed stone and menthol. Intensely flavored and high-pitched on the palate, conveying superb sappy energy and pronounced floral energy. Not yet especially pliant, but this dense, sharply delineated wine really dances on the palate and saturates the mouth on the very long, firmly tannic, saliva-inducing finish.

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques has the most outgoing and maybe most exotic aromatic profiles among Jadot's Gevrey premier crus, with kirsch and fig infusing the red and blackberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very focused and tensile even if it does not quite possess the complexity and ambition of the Cazetiers. Very fine.

92 Points - Decanter

After the more ethereal Estournelles St-Jacques, the Lavaux brings us down to earth with its more brooding bouquet of black cherry, blueberry, currant, rich soil and smoke. On the palate the wine displays more power and structural amplitude, with a firmer chassis of tannin and sapid, wild flavours. Drinking Window 2024 - 2040.
