    Deep saturated ruby. Blacker fruits on the nose, along with spicy oak and mint; less open. (A tighter style of wine than the premier cru, says Dugat, as the vines here were more stressed by drought in '95.) Sweet entry, then bound-up and even a bit tough, with sound acids and a very firm tannic spine. Still, it's impossible to miss the extraordinary sappy sweetness. Needs at least three or four years of bottle aging.

    Earthy black pinot fruit aromas struggle to shine through the considerable new oak influence, which continues on to the medium weight, nicely concentrated, rounded flavors but the tannins come up fast on the backend as there is a hard, very tannic finish. The structure may eventually resolve itself but between the grape tannins and the oak tannnins, I'm not sure there is enough mid-palate concentration.

    Intense, concentrated and fresh, with cassis and blackberry flavors, tomato notes. Tough and chewy, it's difficult to judge now. Try after 2000.

    The Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St.-Jacques bursts with scents of minerals, mocha, wild berries and sweet toasty oak notes. Velvety-textured, rich, and chewy, with flavors suggestive of ripe red and black fruits, mocha, stones and spices, this beautifully concentrated wine has the structure to last for 8-12 years. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29. The wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Pinot Noir, a fragile varietal, reacts poorly to fining, filtration, and careless bottling techniques, I recommend caution when considering buying a red burgundy based on cask samples. I called it as I tasted it, and hope the bottled wine reflects the quality of the samples I was provided.
