Gorgeous. Fresh nose, rich fruit, balanced evenness of all the elements, seamless and pure. But really young and held back too. 'Fraicheur mentholée', again (as Bernard describes it). For now it is the structural power that dominates, but the thick velvet fruit is so powerful that all the time I've beed writing the note I have been holding it in my mouth, exploring, and never does it become aggressive despite its power. L&S (Dec 2010)

The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St. Jacques hovers on the palate with an impeccable, ethereal expression of fruit. This is all grace and elegance, but it isn't an obvious wine, rather it is a wine that slowly seduces the palate and intellect. Rating: 93-96 Antonio Galloni, 2013)

As one would reasonably expect no matter what the character of the vintage, this is also exceptionally fresh with an elegant, layered nose of pungent minerality, red cherry and plum aromas. The minerality that is typically the hallmark of a classic Lavaut is present in abundance with dense, serious and mouth coating flavors that possess buckets of sap that buffers well the extremely firm yet ripe tannins on the magnificently long finish. A complete stunner of a 1er that is a combination of finesse and power and that should be on your short list of wines to purchase if you can find it….and have the patience to wait for it to come around. 2026+ Rating: 93-95 Allen Meadows, 2011)

The nose takes a couple of minutes to blossom, eventually revealing dark cherry fruit, dark plum, a touch of cassis and fine mineralité. Just a hint of smoked meats in the background. The palate is quite strict and controlled: succulent tannins, good acidity, very good weight and matière towards the finish with dark cherry, raspberry and wild strawberry lingering long after the wine has disappeared. Good ageing potential here. Rating: 92-94 Neal Martin, 2011)

Bright red-ruby. Blackberry, menthol, licorice and a whiff of game on the nose. Ripe but dry, with a silky, layered, mouthfilling texture and strong terroir character. As full as this is, it has the balance to avoid coming off as heavy. Best today on the subtle, slowly mounting finish, which features well-buffered tannins. Rating: 92-94 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar(Jan 2011)

100% new oak. Very dark. Heady purple fruited thing. Polished but a little soulless at present. Some 30-year-old and some 65-year-old vines. A bit stringy on the end. 2017-2025 Rating: 16.5+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2011)
