The stunning 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques Vieilles Vignes offers up a bouquet of kaleidoscopic complexity featuring aromas of cassis, cherries, rich forest floor, wood smoke, spice, peony and rose petal. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and multidimensional, with a velvety attack, superb depth, and a succulent core of tannin which entirely conceals what I suspect are considerable reserves of rich tannin. From vines planted in 1923 which never yield more than 15-18 hectoliters per hectare, this is a Lavaux Saint-Jacques which would embarrass many grands crus.
