Wow! What a wine....
 
My visit to Burgundy a month ago allowed me to taste a large number of wines from the 2015 vintage. This vintage is just starting to hit the market and the press and consumers are all over it. The reds in particular are quite exceptional.
From what I tasted Gevrey-Chambertin in one of the standout communes producing wine after wine of serious interest.
My tasting at Albert Bichot was very extensive covering wines from the delicious Bourgogne up to big range of grand crus.
Two wines really impressed me. The first was the Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts offered recently. Click here to view. The other was the Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St-Jacques.
Lavaux St-Jacques is located on the western side of the commune. It is a cooler site tucked towards the Combe de Lavaux right alongside, and on the same elevation, as Clos St-Jacques. The topography ensures a stream of fresh, cool air which translates into style and finesse. Jasper Morris says "Lavaux St-Jacques makes a fine-boned Gevrey with precision and elegance; much more a red-fruit wine than a dense dark Pinot."
I am a big fan of the vineyard and the quality and style it regularly delivers. In 2015 Bichot have made a very special wine.

Darren Harris: 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.
