TASTING NOTES

Performing very well from bottle, unwinding to reveal aromas of wild berries, orange rind, warm spices, raw cocoa, rich soil tones and peonies. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and enveloping, with a fleshy core of fruit that entirely conceals the wine's powdery tannins, ripe acids and a perfumed finish. This is a supremely charming Lavaux Saint-Jacques that will offer a broad drinking window.

 William Kelley January, 2020

It's juicy, textured and crunchy, with the acidity that's typical of the terroir.

TA, Decanter.

It has a fresh and well defined bouquet with sous-bois tinged red berry fruit, crushed stone and a touch of pressed violet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, a little more saline than the Denis Mortet offering with great precision towards the finish. Excellent.

Neil Martin, Vinous. 

 

Firm reduction dominates the fruit today. Otherwise, and as is usually the case, this is easily the biggest and most powerful wine in the range among the Mortet 1ers with its overtly muscular big-bodied flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the textured, youthfully austere and very firmly structured finish. This is certainly impressive.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.

There is fair depth of colour here, with a very intense bouquet comprising some new oak and rich fresh fruit. This fills the mouth perfectly, is very gracious, and extends to a lovely smooth even finish. Graceful and classy. Tasted: December 2018."
