Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 90-92 (2018 Jan.)

This is aromatically similar to the straight Gevrey villages cuvée though with much better complexity. There is also more size, weight and intensity to the stony and muscular medium weight flavors that possess a sleek mouthfeel, all wrapped in a precise, lingering and youthfully austere finale. This will also definitely need at least some time in bottle before it will be approachable.

Vinous - Score: 94 (2019 Oct.)

The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux Saint-Jacques 1er Cru has a gorgeous, pure bouquet with perfumed raspberry, cranberry and pomegranate aromas that are beautifully entwined with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity and whilst there is a patina of oak to be assimilated, it feels as if it is singing from the same hymn sheet as the fruit. Class, class, class. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.
