Wine Critic Reviews for 2019 Claude Dugat Gevrey Chambertin Lavaux St Jacques

The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux Saint-Jacques 1er Cru has a very mineral-driven, terroir-expressive bouquet that displays exquisite definition. Not powerful per se, yet incredibly focused, with a surfeit of finesse. The palate is strict, linear and quite saline; a distinctive estuarine element defines the finish, and hints of Japanese nori and oyster shell linger on the aftertaste. The kind of wine you want to keep returning to. Alas, there were just three barrels this year instead of the usual five. Wines like this challenge the whole notion of this vineyard being a Premier Cru because it outperforms many Grand Crus.

Aromas of cherries, cassis, woodsmoke, caramelized orange rind and rich soil tones introduce Dugat's 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques, a medium to full-bodied, lively and precise wine with a darker fruit profile, more mid-palate amplitude and a longer finish than the domaine's premier cru blend. Lively and mineral, this is an especially fine-boned Lavaux Saint-Jacques.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93-95+ RP
(Domaine Claude Dugat Gevrey-Chambertin "Lavaut St. Jacques" 1er Cru Red) Firm reduction again renders the nose impossible to assess. By contrast there is terrific punch and freshness to the muscular, big and bold flavors that brim with both dry extract and minerality before concluding in a powerful, serious and wonderfully long finale. This isn't a refined wine, yet neither is it especially rustic thanks to the reasonably fine-grained tannins. Ultimately, if you have the patience to age this to full maturity, it should be marvelous. (Drink starting 2034)

It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture.

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.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
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.
