Knockout aromas of wonderfully intense black and red cherry fruit loaded with cassis and a touch of new oak introduce medium-bodied, sweet, harmonious, very expressive and long flavors all underpinned by racy minerality and firm structure. The tannins are prominent but ripe and the density of extract is impressive and this both coats and stains the palate. As it always does, this delivers finesse with real mid-palate punch with near perfect grace. Be sure and serve this cool as the alcohol becomes noticeable if it becomes a bit too warm.

($136) Good medium red. Strawberry, coffee, rose petal and smoky oak on the nose. Sweet, ripe and plump, with aromatic flavors of plum and spicy oak. Here the nearly 100% new oak percentage (the foregoing wines get little or no new oak) adds considerable sex appeal and nicely frames the wine's rather delicate fruit. Finishes long, subtle and aromatic, with an impression of finer tannins.

Vibrant ruby with a pale rim. Quite powerfully scented. Direct and juicy and very fine – quite developed. The tannins have largely melted. But it is now a very solid and rewarding mouthful of Grand Cru quality fruit. Freshness and race. Without being massive. Real lift and class. Very long.

Funnily enough, I have not tasted this particular vintage of Clos Saint Jacques from Rousseau since it was first released. In the interim, it has aged with style and is, in fact, not that far removed from the 2001 Chambertin. It unfurls in the glass with strawberry, redcurrant, minerals and delicate touches of dried rose petal, never achieving the intensity of a very top vintage, but so understated and feminine. The palate is very silky on the entry. This Clos Saint Jacques is marked by the fineness of its tannins and its harmony rather than volume, with just a hint of cured Italian meat toward the tender finish. Superb. Drink now-2025.
