Do you have some of the 2010 Albert Bichot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St-Jacques in your cellar?
The Wine was a Gold Medal Winner at The International Wine Challenge 2014 and now it has won Decanter Magazine's Best Burgundy Trophy at their 2014 World Wine Awards!
You can imagine the wines it defeated to win this prestigious trophy!
We have been granted a number of cases from Bichot's reserves and we are delighted to offer this wine again at an outstanding Pre Arrival Price.
Lavaux St-Jacques is a south-facing vineyard of 30 hectares at the top of Gevrey-Chambertin. It is quite cool and produces wines of precision and elegance. Cropping is low and the wine is made in the classic style which merits a little time in the cellar, especially from a great vintage like 2010.

Not only is this a great wine to drink but it is also perfect to cellar for a decade or more.
We offer our usual 15% Pre Arrival Discount. However, for unbroken Cases of 12 Botrtles we increase this discount to 20%. That makes this superb Premier Cru just $140.00 a bottle!
Of course, the wine is now in high demand and we have a limited number of cases available.
Albert Bichot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St-Jacques 2010
Pre Arrival Price $148.50
Case of 12 Bottles $1680.00 (=$140.00 a bottle)
Decanter: A beautifully plush Burgundy, with a minerally, leathery perfume of wild strawberries and cream plus an exuberance of dark red fruit. Deveoping on the palate, with sweet and savoury notes, hints of leather and wood smoke, and enoughfruit to manage the tannins. A long finish and fine future.
