2012 Gevrey-Chambertin, 1er Cru Lavaut St. Jacques, Maison Roche De Bellene (6 x Bottle)

France Burgundy Nuits

Good bright, deep red. Red berries and licorice on the nose, lifted by pungent minerality. Sharply delineated and brisk in the mouth; tighter than the other Gevrey premier crus here but with terrific dimension and inner-mouth tension. Most impressive today on the rising, perfumed back end, which leaves the taste buds quivering. This beauty is downright 2010-like in its detail and perfume.

The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St-Jacques has another beautiful bouquet: so pure and refined, unfurling in the glass with fresh strawberry and raspberry preserve – hints of vanilla in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, good depth and structure with a straight-laced, “correct” finish that will demand 3-4 years to soften. This is very respectable and will reward cellaring.
