Gevrey 1er Cru Lavaut St Jacques 17
A discreet touch of wood surrounds the overtly sauvage-inflected dark berry fruit and violet aromas. I like the sleek and focused character of the mineral-driven medium-bodied flavours that possess evident muscle before culminating in a similar but more complex finale. Note that moderate patience will be required as this is firmly structured.
