2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux-St-Jacques

 
2015 Lavaux-st-jacques header
Three top wines from 2015!
 
Lavaux St-Jacques is located on the western side of the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin. 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. We have small quantities of 2015 Lavaux from three makers still available.
  
Albert Bichot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St-Jacques 2015 
Landed Price $237.95
Pre Arrival Price $201.95
22 bottles available

Bichot Lavaux Label Tim Atkin MW: 
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. 95 Points

Wine Advocate - Neal Martin: 
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. 92-94 Points
Domaine Henri Magnien Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St-Jacques 2015
Landed Price $265.95
Pre Arrival Price $225.95
34 bottles available

Magnien Lavaux NV label Darren Harris: A discreet but wildly expressive nose of wild red and black berries, pepper, earth and Asian spices. The palate is elegant with dark fruits, minerals and liqorice. Precise with wonderful balance. Light on its feet but with serious intensity finishing with fine tannins and great persistance. The cool site shows though in the feel of this not-to-be-missed Lavaux.
Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaut St-Jacques 2015
Landed Price $234.95
Pre Arrival Price $199.95
15 bottles available

Drouhin-Laroze Lavaux Label Tim Atkin MW: 
The Drouhins' parcel is in the middle of this cool, elegant Premier Cru and is a classic
expression of the site. Minerally, crunchy and refreshing, with a backdrop of serious tannins,
stylish aromatic oak and a core of juicy, tangy blackberry fruit. 2024-30. 95 Points

Not to be missed!
Gevrey-Chambertin is certainly a candidate for the most successful commune in 2015.
