2018 Arnaud Mortet Lavaux Saint-Jacques Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Burgundy France

$289.99 USD

To distinguish his 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques from its Domaine Denis Mortet counterpart, Arnaud Mortet opted to have his team cut out the central rachis, retaining intact berries and their pedicels, for over two-thirds of the crop. The result is a more perfumed, exotic cuvée, evocative of pennies, orange rind, cinnamon and rose petals as well as sweet wild berries and plums. Medium to full-bodied, charming and open, it's more supple and expressive than its stablemate.
