Vinous – 93-95
The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St. Jacques stands out in this range for its supple, resonant personality. One of the most refined and sensual of the 2011s, the Lavaux impresses for its expressive red fruit, silky tannins and phenomenal overall balance. It is a touch less overt than many of the other 2011s in the cellar, but exceptionally polished. Sweet floral and spiced notes flesh out on the radiant finish. In 2011, the Lavaux St. Jacques is a true standout. The 2011 was done with 75% whole clusters and aged in 100% new French oak.
