Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru 'Lavaux St-Jacques'
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques is elegant and perfumed this year, bursting with aromas of peonies, orange rind, wild berries and cassis. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied and fine-boned, less lavishly textural and more introverted than the Champeaux this year, structured around supple, powdery tannins and succulent acids. 95 points, William Kelley, Wine Spectator
A distinctly cool and restrained nose offers up ripe and ultra-fresh aromas of red and dark currant, pungent earth and plenty of forest floor character. The equally sleek, intense and tautly muscular flavors also exude an abundance of minerality on the impressively persistent, compact and youthfully austere finish. This markedly firm effort needs to add depth but it's very promising. 94 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound
A lively glowing purple with a very exuberant nose. Perfume and some fresh oak, typical of the cooler sites which really thrive in 2018. Perfect fruit weight behind, deep red raspberry with a long sweet follow through. 93-96 points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
