Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Gevrey Chambertin Lavaut Saint Jacques 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Gevrey-Chambertin|
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaut Saint-Jacques 1er Cru is completely de-stemmed, as the domaine felt that the wine already came with sufficient natural spiciness. It has a very classy bouquet of copious red cherry and raspberry fruit, becoming a little darker with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, impressive symmetry and an elegant finish. This is the kind of wine that is becoming more synonymous with the domaine since their change of modus operandi. Superb.
