Gevrey Lavaux Saint Jacques, Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot 2014
This is also very Gevrey in style with its cool and restrained nose of freshly turned earth, underbrush, various dark berries and game scents. There is first-rate vibrancy and delineation to the focused and powerful medium weight plus flavors that exhibit plenty of minerality on the balanced, long and palate staining finale. This is impressive though note that unlike some wines in the range this will not make for particularly good early drinking.
|Score: 91/94||Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (15 1 16), January 2016|
Good deep red-ruby. Blackberry and black raspberry along with some very ripe hints on the nose. Sappy, sweet flavors of blackberry, violet and crushed stone show excellent grip and firm acidity. Finishes savory and very tightly wound. Excellent potential here but this wine will require cellaring.
