Given its position at the bottom of the cool Combe de Lavaux, it’s no surprise that the Premier Cru made such balanced wines in a hot vintage. This is a very polished, refreshing Pinot with redcurrant and pomegranate fruit, a dusting of oak and chalky acidity. 2022-28

The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint Jacques has a fragrant bouquet with very fine Pinot Noir character, the coolness of the site really counterbalancing the precocity of the vintage and frankly, showing up the more alcoholic and powerful Vosne-Romanée Malconsorts. The palate is very well balanced with supple tannin, fleshy and harmonious in the mouth with a very elegant, quite suave finish. This comes highly recommended.
Tasted after the Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Malconsorts and before the Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru. The most lifted of the three. More red fruits than black. Mineral-driven. Round, full and velvety in the mouth. Bags of intense flavour, yet detailed with a great palate feel. I wrote the word "delicious" as this wine represents wonderful drinking at the moment but the balance, complexity and pedigree also make it a candidate for extended cellaring.
