Tasting Notes

Noticeable wood fights a bit with the notably denser and slightly riper if otherwise similar nose. There is more volume and more intensity to the broad-shouldered, robust, detailed and mineral-driven flavors that culminate in an overtly powerful, highly complex and strikingly long if slightly austere finish. This is quite firm but not hard and should drink well after only a few years of age thanks to the abundant amount of dry extract. This too is very much worth your interest.

Score: 91/94Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (61), January 2016

Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaut St Jacques has a simple, quite juicy bouquet with ample fruit—cranberry, wild strawberries and a touch of orange peel. It seems to coalesce and gain harmony with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin and a fine line of acidity, quite pure and juicy with a primal, black plum and white pepper-tinged finish that lingers in the mouth. Very fine indeed, but it will need another couple of years and then it may deserve a higher score. Stylish and traditional Lavaut-Saint-Jacques from Domaine Duroché. Tasted September 2017. Drink Date 2019 - 2029
