Tasting Notes

To give readers an idea of Burgundy’s tiny plots, Mortet’s 2002 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St.-Jacques is from 1.18 hectares (2.92 acres) of vines (averaging 50 years old) spread out in five parcels. It has a superb nose of violets, spices and bing cherries as well as a magnificently elegant personality. Medium-bodied, lively, and detailed, it displays a cherry-dominated, juicy character of admirable purity, grace, and length. According to Mortet, this was the last vineyard harvested as it is a cool terroir that ripens late. Pierre Rovani - Wine Advocate
