    Deep red with ruby highlights. Very ripe flavors and aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, licorice, dark chocolate and menthol. Big, rich, sweet and stuffed with fruit. Not the last word in definition, but this big boy saturates every square millimeter of the palate. In a big, rather masculine style, finishing with excellent length and nice lift for the year.

    The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St. Jacques is a serious wine that has begun to close down in bottle. While that is a great sign for the future, today the Lavaux St. Jacques isn't showing much. The balance of fruit and structure is compelling, though. This should be a magical bottle once it awakens

    Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
