Meget kendt 1. Cru mark, grænser op til Lavaux Saint-Jacques og Clos Saint-Jacques men er en anelse højere beliggende. Vinen er mørkerød, har en stor og indtagende bouquet af vilde kirsebær og florale noter. Smagen er fyldig, rund og velstrukturet. Kan lagre længe under de rette forhold.
A more elegant if not necessarily more complex nose combines strikingly fresh notes of plum, earth and spice with an appealing floral wisp. There is excellent purity to the transparent and more mineral-driven if lighter-bodied flavors that possess a lovely mouthfeel while delivering even better length on the lingering finish. Unlike the Lavaut this could be approached young but should age just as well. 92/2026+ .
Good medium red; a bit less saturated than the Champonnets and Lavaux Saint-Jacques. The most expressive on the nose of these three premier crus, offering scents of black raspberry, smoky minerals, rose petal and spices. Plush, savory and sweet, boasting excellent depth to its restrained flavors of red and darker berries. Still youthfully wound-up but the wine's breadth and fine-grained texture are already impressive. A step beyond the other Gevrey premier crus in sweetness, finesse and length. Finishes with serious but integrated tannins and noteworthy subtle length. This is almost 2015-like in its richness but can't match Esmonin's two 2016 grand crus for texture.
Saturated flavors of wild cherry, Earl Grey tea, sandalwood, leather, spice and dried orange peel are embedded in the dense structure of this red. Raw and rigid on the finish for now, with fine potential. Best from 2023 through 2043. 100 cases imported.
