2004 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St Jacques, Domaine Denis Mortet

Deep ruby colour with close to pronounced level intensity aromas of black plum, dark earth, smoke, toasted herb, rose jam and touch of sandalwood. It is dry with medium acidity, alcohol and quite full bodied. The tannin is at medium level and fine grained in nature, a bit green though. On palate it has slightly over medium intensity flavours of black plum, rose, cabbage, mushroom, and touch of smoke and earth. Fairly long length with black plum finish. (92)
