Lavaux Saint-Jacques is the largest premier cru vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin with 9.53 hectares situated west of the village at the beginning

of the Combe de Lavaux. The Combe has a cooling effect on this south facing vineyard although there are temperature extremes, hot daytime

sun and cool night breezes, a contrast that suits Pinot Noir. The soil composition is similar to its neighbour Clos Saint-Jacques with thin stony

red-brown soils at the top of the plot while lower down the slope soils are deeper and finer-grained.

An ultra fresh and exceptionally elegant and airy nose features cool red berry and stone aromas that lead to equally mineral-inflected

and beautifully well-detailed flavors that possess outstanding intensity and excellent persistence. I very much like the balance and this 

is classic Lavaut.
