With a beautiful garnet red robe, this Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru « Lavaux Saint-Jacques » has aromas of ripe fruit, jam, mild spices and leather, with a delicate touch of oak. The mouth is powerfully concentrated and robust, tannic and well-balanced with a lovely long finish.
One of the great appellations of the Cote de Nuits both in terms of size and of reputation, Gevrey Chambertin is
characterised by a wide variety of different terroirs. No white wines are found here, only pinot noir is cultivated. Our vines are situated along the slopes lining the exit of the Lavaux combe and are orientated southeast to east-southeast. The soil is shallow and light with brown limestone on the upper section and brown calcite towards the lower portion. The presence of clay is abundant on thick limestone beds dating to mid- to late-Paleozoic.
|Taste this Gevrey Chambertin Premier Cru « Lavaux Saint-Jacques » with red meat dishes, small game and fine classic cheese. Perfect match for a coq au vin, boeuf bourguignon, hare cooked on a spit, duck in wine sauce or veal liver with mushrooms. With dessert, try a cherry clafouti (French speciality rather like a thick pancake with cherries).
