2017 Domaine Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Lavaux St-Jacques"

SKU #1444044 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Lavaux-St-Jacques came into its own in 2017, thanks to the influence of cool breezes from the Hautes Côtes. This old-vine cuvée, aged in 40% new wood, is wonderfully fresh and precise, with chalky minerality and a lingering finish. (TA) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very fragrant with effusive, floral notes and some sour cherry. This is a very graceful and filigree wine, in which the tannins show at the end as if suddenly emerging from the depths. In spite of that, the finish is super elegant. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A beautifully layered and fresh nose offers up notes of essence of plum, rose petal, anise and hints of wood toast, forest floor and the sauvage. Once again there is a lovely mouthfeel to the medium weight and tautly muscular larger-scaled flavors that possess excellent delineation and plenty of minerality that adds a touch of lift to the firm, serious and sneaky long finish. I like the complexity and this too should age effortlessly. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2019)

89-91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux Saint-Jacques 1er Cru comes from a one-hectare parcel of old vines. It has an attractive bouquet of raspberry, forest floor and fern-like aromas that gather momentum in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, good depth and a little chewiness on the entry. I would like a little more detail and tension on the finish. Let’s see how it performs once in bottle.
