Estate Notes

Gevrey-Chambertin is one of the largest and most famous red wine producing village in Burgundy’s Côte de Nuits district, based on the Pinot Noir grape.

At the top end of Gevrey-Chambertin are nine grand crus, including Charmes-Chambertin and Mazoyères-Chambertin. The best premier crus include Clos Saint-Jacques and Les Cazetiers, and below this are the generic appellations of Gevry-Chambertin and then the Côte de Nuits.

Denis Mortet's Lavaux vineyard is situated in the northwest extremity of the Gevrey-Chambertin commune at the top of the slope, facing southward, and often appends the name of the nearby Clos Saint-Jacques vineyard to its own.

Reviews

"The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St. Jacques is a huge wine, but it is shutting down in bottle. The 2009 boasts incredible purity and depth in is fruit. Readers will need to be patient with the 2009. The extraordinary, deep finish is but one of the signs that points to the immense pedigree of Lavaux St. Jacques." eRobertParker.com

"Complex, rather wild nose offers redcurrant, menthol, coffee, licorice and game. Like a red berry cocktail in the mouth, combining fat fruit with surprising energy and grip. Finishes very broad and long, with substantial fine-grained tannins and lingering notes of strawberry, raspberry and menthol. Arnaud Mortet told me that sunny years like 2003, 2005 and 2009 are typically best for this cuvee.  Lovely wine." Stephen Tanzer
