The Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St. Jacques 1er Cru has regularly been one of the stars in this range since it was introduced a few years ago. Dense, ripe and explosive in the glass, the Lavaux is stellar in 2016. This was the last of Giroud's parcels to be harvested in 2016. The late harvest produced a rich, unctuous Gevrey endowed with real class and personality. A healthy dose of whole clusters (50%) adds aromatic nuance and savoriness, but without overpowering the wine. All the elements are wonderfully fused together. – Stephen Tanzer – Vinous Media

Tasting note: Notes of herbal tea can be found on the intensely earthy and sauvage-suffused cool dark berry aromas. The dense, serious and overtly powerful flavors possess good muscle and plenty of minerality before concluding in a balanced, long and mouth coating finish where a hint of wood arises. This built-to-age effort will need plenty of patience before it's completely ready for prime time drinking. Sweet Spot – Outstanding – Allen Meadows - Burghound
