2014 Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St. Jacques

$109.99
2014 Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St. Jacques
A Cuvee that seldom makes its way to the US, we were able to get a few ex-cellar cases of this great buy for Gevrey. The white burgundy in 2014 was exceptional, drawing most of the attention, but the reds were great too, and it is fun to check in years later to see how well they are doing. Lavaux St. Jacques shares the same topographical characteristics as Cazetiers, and Clos St, Jacques, located lower in the valley. Considered one of the top three premier crus in Gevrey, Faiveley's portion of Lavaux St. Jacques, which lies just under a hectare, was planted in 1945, 1967, 1968, 1986, and 1993. The 2014 is a very structured bottle and is only just reaching its drinking window, which should age effortlessly for over a decade or more if desired. The old vines here bring excellent concentration to the table with an aromatically profound profile. A wine for traditional Red Burgundy fans, we have the only bottles of 2014 available in the USA, which is an excellent buy for a Gevrey 1er Cru with age and available for less than the current releases, its a no brainer.

Allen Meadows 91-93 points! "Here too there is enough wood to notice on the expressive nose that is riper than is typical for LSJ. In the same vein the medium-bodied flavors are notably richer than is typical for a young LSJ with plenty of minerality on the robust, powerful and concentrated finish. This is serious if a bit atypical and note well that it's going to require plenty of cellar time to reach its apogee."
