2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St-Jacques. 95 Points from Tim Atkin MW

Bichot Lavaux 2016 Header
Always a super vineyard...
 
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. The 2016 vintage continues a string of tremendous Lavaux-St-Jacques from Bichot.
  
I have spoken about the brutal frost of 26 April 2016. Fortunately, this parcel of Lavaux was not badly affected and we have a good allocation of the 2016. As a special incentive, until the end of next week, we offer this wine at 25% Pre Arrival Discount instead of the usual 15%. Save an extra $26.00 per bottle!

Bichot Lavaux Label Tim Atkin MW: 
Using fruit from one parcel of purchased grapes, close to the Clos St-Jacques, this is another example of the improvements in Bichot's négociant wines in recent years. With finely handled 30% new oak, it shows the freshness and elegance of the site, with crunchy red cherry and raspberry fruit and nuanced tannins. 2021-28. 95 Points
