2011 Gevrey Chambertin Lavaux St Jacques Camille Giroud

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



An airy, cool and wonderfully pure nose combines multiple elements that include wild red berries, various mineral nuances, sauvage hints and plenty of Gevrey style earth. There is a terrific sense of underlying tension to the stony, detailed and powerful, even robust middle weight flavors that deliver excellent persistence on the balanced if markedly austere finish. This is very Gevrey and the restraint of this very cool terroir in a cool vintage definitely is evident. Tasted: Apr 15, 2013



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St Jacques 2011 has plenty of brambly red berry fruit on the nose with touches of rose petal and cold stone, gaining intensity in the glass and becoming quite entrancing. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, rounded tannins matched with a keen line of acidity. Harmonious with decent weight, it concludes with structured red fruit that suggest it will age nicely over the next decade. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
