Darker and more masculine on the nose than the 1er cru, offering dark cherry, blackberry, dried rose petals, and crushed stone aromas. Silky on the opening, there is a spicy complexity to its dark fruit finish. Serve with game, meats, mushroom dishes and strong cheeses.

Wine SpectatorDesignation: Collectibles. This concentrated red offers effusive cherry, raspberry and spice aromas and flavors, with licorice, graphite and floral hints. Very pure and balanced, with a long aftertaste of cherry, sandalwood, and mineral. The finish goes on and on. Best from 2020 through 2036. 25 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St.-Jacques comes from Claude's single 0.30-hectare parcel of vines planted in 1980 located just south of Estournelles. Raised entirely in new wood, it has a well-defined bouquet that carries the oak well. The palate has a candied, sorbet-fresh opening with an intermingling of red and black fruit, the mineralite surfacing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with quite strict tannins. There is a fine linearity here that lends it focus. Perhaps I would prefer a little less new oak on the finish, but it manages to maintain fine tension throughout.
