2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er cru “Lavaux Saint-Jacques”

Domaine Maume

2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er cru “Lavaux Saint-Jacques” Domaine Maume - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

Here is a Gevrey-Chambertin that takes us back in time, as the methods used to produce it are today only practiced by a determined minority of ultra-traditional producers. After meticulous year-round work in the vineyards culminating in harvest by hand, native yeasts convert the must to wine in the cool depths of the Maume cellar. The wines are racked and bottled by gravity, and never fined or filtered to ensure each bottling is saturated with Burgundian heart and soul. Thanks to this hands-off approach in the cellar—not to mention old vines planted in a top terroir—this wine boasts real concentration and finesse.

The premier cru “Lavaux Saint-Jacques” is consistently one of the domaine’s most age-worthy wines. Deeply perfumed with dark red fruit and seductive floral notes, it presents a muscular, chiseled structure on the palate that sinks in and lingers with gravitas. Elegant but showing plenty of grain and grip, the 2011 currently offers only a glimpse as what this majestic wine will ultimately become. It is certain to blossom into a true classic with time, making this Gevrey a must-have for all serious red Burgundy enthusiasts. –Anthony Lynch

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
