Wine Critic Reviews for 2016 Claude Dugat Gevrey Chambertin Lavaux St Jacques

The Lavaux St-Jacques reveals a deep-pitched nose of sapid black fruits, bonfire, game bird, earth and truffle, introducing a full-bodied, sappy wine with a deep core of vibrant fruit and a chassis of fine-grained tannins. Like the premier cru cuvée, this is wonderfully transparent and full of energy this year.Drinking Window 2026 - 2045.

Decanter | 94 DEC
The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques has a pure bouquet with a mixture of blackberry, briary, redcurrant and crushed strawberry scents underneath subtle slate-like aromas and sea cave notes. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine line of acidity, linear and taut. It needs a little more flesh toward the finish to develop, but I admire the tension and terroir expression of this Lavaux Saint-Jacques. I suspect it my have more to offer once in bottle and it will eventually land toward the top of my banded score.

Robert Parker Neal Martin | 91-93 RP-NM
Bright, medium red. Very pure aromas of cherry, raspberry, licorice and gibier lifted by a floral topnote. A step up in sweetness from the 1er Cru, offering tangy cranberry and pomegranate flavors and noteworthy inner-mouth tension. Very dynamic, precise wine with a firm tannic spine, but juicy and sappy rather than fleshy.

Vinous Media | 90-92 VM
A classic Lavaut nose combines notes of game, freshly turned earth, forest floor and dark berry aromas. There is more volume and an evident muscularity to the more obvious mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors that also terminate in a lean, austere and very serious finish. This is most decidedly not intended for early consumption as it will need time to flesh out but the underlying material appears to be up to the challenge.

If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
