"The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux Saint-Jacques 1er Cru fulfils all the promise that it showed from barrel and maybe even adds to it. Pure, unadulterated dark cherry, wild strawberry, crushed stone and very subtle herbaceous notes on the nose that is full of tension and focus. Like Arnaud Mortet’s Mes 5 Terroirs, the new oak is beautifully integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin. There is a symmetry about this Premier Cru that I adored. The wine builds gently to a very convincing, quite tangy marmalade finish. Superb. Tasted at the Domaine Direct Tasting in London." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"An overtly floral and highly restrained nose offers up aromas of airy and cool essence of red currant, freshly turned earth, humus and forest floor scents. The intense, powerful and muscular broad-shouldered flavors possess fine mid-palate concentration thanks to the abundant level of dry extract that buffers the firm tannic spine on the austere and serious finish. In sum this chiseled and mineral-driven effort is a classically styled LSJ." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 73

"Bright, sweet, fruity, alluring nose and very rich and polished without being too much. Perfect for those who yearn for old-fashioned burgundy that’s fully accessible. Amazingly accessible in fact considering the vintage and appellation. Sweet and charming." JancisRobinson.com
