Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux Saint-Jacques

Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux Saint-Jacques
Côte de Nuits
Premier Cru
100% Pinot Noir grapes

Gevrey Chambertin is the most northern of the great communes of the Côte de Nuits. There are 26 Premiers Crus and 8 Grands Crus. One half of Premiers crus is around Grands Crus (near Morey), the other is at the north near la Combe de Lavaux, with a clayey and chalky soil.

"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 likeness between the soil of Premier Cru (for example "Lavaux St Jacques) and Grands Crus situated on the slope (Chambertin, Mazis Chambertin...).

This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and aged 18-20 months in oak barrels before bottling.

Gevrey Chambertin "Lavaux St Jacques" has a magnificient 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 (exept blue cheese).

It is an excellent on duty wine, this Premier Cru can age between 5 and 8 years following the age of the wine and keeping conditions. For very tannic years, it will age longer.
