TASTING NOTES

"A severe touch of smoke marks the nose at this early stage, but the underlying fruit is pure and finely drawn. The palate has great balance: exquisite fruit is embalmed with chocolaty oak without being overdone. There is freshness and a touch of velvet." Anne Krebiehl MW, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 55

"This is quite firmly reduced at present and about all that is discernible is the wood treatment. Otherwise there is outstanding punch, power and minerality to the dense medium weight flavors that brim with dry extract on the firm, balanced and serious finale that is a bit less youthfully austere than usual." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 65

"The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaut Saint-Jacques has an intense bouquet of blackberry, boysenberry and hints of blueberry fruit. There is fine mineralité here. The palate is medium-bodied with bold and firm tannin, the 60% new oak perhaps just a little conspicuous towards the second half, although there is clearly sufficient fruit soak that up. There is good body and matière here, although it will need 5-6 years to reach its drinking plateau." Neil Beckett, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 55
