Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: 53

Generous amounts of wood fight slightly with the otherwise very fresh aromas of plum, wet stone, dark berries and humus. There is excellent richness to the mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent energy on the supple and suave mid-palate that possesses a relatively sophisticated mouth feel before culminating in a well-balanced and persistent finish. Even though the Lavaut is consistently Mortet's best 1er, it's presently no more complex or persistent than the Champeaux. I should also note that this is a bit too woody for my taste though it's not over the top.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 173

(vinified with 40% whole clusters): Deep red. Aromas of black cherry and sweet oak are lifted by a mineral pungency. Dense, sappy and saline, with its serious volume leavened by energy and cut. Less oaky today than the Champeaux, with a hint of peppery pungency (from the stems?) giving shape and lift to the broad, full middle palate. Finishes with serious but harmonious tannins, a hint of chocolate and excellent life and lift.

The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St Jacques was matured entirely in new oak. It has a very ripe, lifted bouquet carried by the new oak at the moment, but there appears to be sufficient fruit underneath to keep it balanced and allow the terroir to show through with age. The palate is medium-bodied with a vibrant spicy opening. This is a vivacious Lavaux with fiery red and black fruit mixed with licorice and a crisp, tense, very spicy finish that leaves an impression. Allow it several years to shed that new oak and you will have a superb Gevrey on your hands. Drink 2017-2033.

Vinous Author: Antonio Galloni

Layers of blue and purple fruit, smoke, licorice, violets and cloves all flesh out in the 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St- Jacques. Layered, silky and expressive to the core, the 2011 shimmers across the palate with gorgeous intensity. The 2011 is naturally not quite as rich as the 2012, but it is compelling for its combination of intense fruit and floral/savory overtones.
