Gevrey-Chambertin 1° Cru – Lavaux St-Jacques
“Vaut” is a word meaning depression. On the top of the slope, the soil is infertile and stony with a layer of rock some 25 cm deep. At the bottom of the hill, the soil is stony but also deep. An uneven and gentle slope allows for excellent natural drainage. The vines benefit from maximum sunshine. Close to the comb, they cool down a lot during the evening. This contrast is well-suited to Pinot Noir.
Very complex, persistent and deep, it requires a bit of time to fully express itself. When it is ready, it is nothing short of perfection: tight and velvety tannins, refined and ripened fruit, with a practically never ending finish.
