Allen Meadows’ Burghound
Deft wood influence frames brooding and reticent aromas of various dark berries, humus-suffused forest floor and herbal tea. There is solid density and evident power and minerality to the medium weight flavors that deliver very good length on the robust, compact, focused and youthfully austere finish. This is a classically styled LSJ and will require at least some forbearance. 92 Points ♥Jan 2020
Wine Advocate Tasting Note
Produced from six different parcels, the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques exhibits aromas of smoky wild berries, peonies, grilled meats and rich forest floor. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, velvety and supple, with good depth and volume, concluding with a sapid finish. 92 Points, William Kelley, Feb 2020
Great with venison, beef and mature cheeses
