Claude Dugat Gevrey Chambertin Lavaux St Jacques 2011
|Region||France, Burgundy, Gevrey-Chambertin|
BurghoundThis is slightly riper and certainly more complex with the same elegance to the plum, violet and dark berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced with warm earth nuances There is excellent phenolic maturity to the cool, pure and mineral-driven flavors that terminate in a long, serious and borderline rustic finish that displays a hint of salinity. This should mature well but it's sufficiently robust at present to require a few years in the cellar first. This is also good stuff and worth your attention.
Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St. Jacques has a very expressive bouquet, again quite refined and natural with fragrant dark cherry, strawberry fruit mingling with dried rose petals and sea spray. The palate is very sensual on the satin-like opening that builds in the mouth, revving up toward a gorgeous, harmonious finish of dark berry fruit mixed with a touch of spice on the aftertaste that lends it length. Wonderful. Drink 2015-2025.
