Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin Lavaux Saint-Jacques 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Gevrey-Chambertin|
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux Saint-Jacques 1er Cru was quite closed on the nose, opening gradually to reveal blackberry, wild strawberry and light sea spray aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins, quite robust and grainy in texture and showing some hardness on the savory finish. This needs time to mellow and I suspect it will be surpassed by the 2019.
