Tasting notes:
'Produced from six different parcels, the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques exhibits aromas of smoky wild berries, peonies, grilled meats and rich forest floor. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and supple, with good depth and volume, concluding with a sapid finish.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 92/100

'Moderate wood influence still allows the brooding and reticent aromas of various dark berries, humus-suffused forest floor and herbal tea. There is solid density and evident power and minerality to the medium weight flavors that deliver very good if not special length on the compact, focused and youthfully austere finish. This is a classically styled LSJ and will require at least some forbearance.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 89-92/100

About Domaine Harmand-Geoffroy:
Gérard Harmand and his son, Philippe, lead this 9 hectare family-run domaine that was established in the late nineteenth century. Domaine Harmand-Geoffroy produce quintessential Gevrey-Chambertin from a superb range of terroirs including the remarkable, old vine holdings in Lavaux St Jacques, Champeaux, Perrière and La Bossiere (Monopole), as well as a healthy slice of the Grand Cru Mazis-Chambertin. ‘I agree completely with Harmand’s assertion that they’re now making wines that are better balanced and less overtly rustic than in the past’ writes Allen Meadows. This once under-the-radar and overperforming property is now firmly in the cult category.

‘Having imported Harmand-Geoffroys wines since the 2013 vintage, we are starting to see how well they mature. In fact, these Gevreys must be aged for 5 years before showing off their full spectrum of flavour. Great value, classic Red Burgundy.’ – Roland
