On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and layered, with an authoritative chassis of rich, velvety tannins cloaked in succulent fruit, and a long, sapid finish. This is an ample, even lavish Lavaux Saint-Jacques that nonetheless remains precise and controlled, fully realizing the potential of the vintage. - William Kelley

(91-94 points) Here the wood treatment is more pronounced though not so much as to stifle the markedly earthy and again notably floral-scented nose of black raspberry liqueur and plum aromas. There is excellent size, weight and richness to the big-bodied and intensely mineral-driven flavors that brim with dry extract before exploding on the wonderfully persistent finish where the wood resurfaces. Like the Champeaux this should be approachable after 7 to 8 years yet if you want to see it at its peak, it will need at least 15 years.

Much more reticent on the nose than the glorious Champeaux but already with superb incipient complexity to its aromas of black raspberry, licorice, silex and game. Fat and rich on entry, then quite backward in the middle and not at all in a sweet phase today. In fact, this is much tighter and stricter than the Champeaux and Mes Cinq Terroirs--and seemingly more marked by its oak component in the early going. Best right now on the palate-staining back end, which shows strong medicinal reserve and supporting mineral spine. This powerful, brooding, youthfully medicinal wine may well outperform the Champeaux in the long run; I hope to be alive then.
