Our Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Lavaut-St-Jacques
The Gevrey-Chambertin Premiers Crus are matured in 40% new oak barrels and barrels previously used for one wine made from wood from the Allier and Nivernais regions. We favour light to medium-plus toasts as this ensures the perfect harmony between the wine and wood tannins.
Lavaut Saint Jacques has aromas of red fruit and violet. The palate is sound, lively and fruity from morello, conveying delicacy and gourmandise. A discrete woody nose suggests elegance while the tannic structure reveals the majestic quality. Good length on the palate.
Serving temperature: 16° to 18°C
Matching food: Perfect with a loin of lamb, pigeon casserole or a selection of cheeses. This is a wine that goes well with autumnal and winter recipes.
