From one of the best premier cru sites in Gevrey, the domaine is always proud of this Lavaux. From a tiny 2/3 of a hectare parcel planted with old and very old vines dating back 40 and 90 years ago. This 2008 boasts fabulous concentration with dense, dark fruits and a firm structure. The character is elegant and precise, and with good reserves of power. Great Gevrey.

"By now, it is pretty apparent that Domaine Harmand-Geoffroy has some great old vines to work with, and this trend does not stop with the Lavaux St. Jacques, where the family's vines all range between forty and ninety years of age. The Harmands have just a bit more than two thirds of a hectare of this outstanding premier cru, and their 2008 is excellent. The bouquet is deep and classically reserved, offering up scents of black cherries, a touch of cassis, vinesmoke, French roast, a great base of soil, fresh herbs and just a touch of new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely reserved on the attack, with a fine core of fruit, nascent complexity, ripe tannins and outstanding focus on the very long, tangy and well-balanced finish. Just a classic example of Lavaux St. Jacques. 2018-2050." 92+/100 John Gilman, View From the Cellar
