Layers of fruit continue to flesh out in the glass as the wine finds its focus. The Lavaux St. Jacques was aged in 100% new oak but there is more than enough fruit to support the cooperage. The fruit seems to blossom in every direction on the large expansive finish. Anticipated maturity: 2022-2032.

(100% new oak; Mortet owns 1.2 hectares in this "cold" terroir with five parcels extending from the top to bottom of the vineyard and encompassing a range of soil types): Good full medium red. Sappy raspberry minerals... (100% new oak; Mortet owns 1.2 hectares in this "cold" terroir with five parcels extending from the top to bottom of the vineyard and encompassing a range of soil types): Good full medium red. Sappy raspberry minerals and crushed stone on the nose with a complementary oakiness. Tightly coiled and sharply delineated with terrific energy to the pomegranate and citrus zest flavors. Plenty of oak tannins on the savory very long finish but also explosive fruit.

The very rich and quite round medium-bodied flavors possess fine... This is also very cool yet among the ripest wines in the range with its nose of cassis and black cherry liqueur accompanied by plenty of mineral nuances. The very rich and quite round medium-bodied flavors possess fine mid-palate volume as well as a satiny textured all wrapped in a wonderfully long and superbly refined finish. This is also a wine of finesse yet there is no lack of focus or punch. Outstanding.
