Stephen Tanzer's IWCDeep saturated ruby. Blacker fruits on the nose, along with spicy oak and mint; less open. (A tighter style of wine than the premier cru, says Dugat, as the vines here were more stressed by drought in '95.) Sweet entry, then bound-up and even a bit tough, with sound acids and a very firm tannic spine. Still, it's impossible to miss the extraordinary sappy sweetness.
Robert Parker, The Wine AdvocateReviewer, Pierre Rovani - The Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St.-Jacques bursts with scents of minerals, mocha, wild berries and sweet toasty oak notes. Velvety-textured, rich, and chewy, with flavors suggestive of ripe red and black fruits, mocha, stones and spices.
