Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 29

A subtle trace of wood frames the bright red pinot fruit and naturally spicy nose that is extremely fresh and this sense of vibrancy and freshness suffuses the rich, round and even more powerful lithe and tautly shaped flavors replete with the same energy and precision of the Ruchottes, all wrapped in a stony and perfectly balanced finish that seems to have no end. A stunning wine that should age for years and this is potentially the best CSJ that I have seen in the last 20 years.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 137

($279) Good medium cherry-red. Red berries, red cherry, mint and smoky, spicy oak on the nose. A step up in sweetness and volume from the foregoing 2005s, with a strong spice character to its red fruit flavors. This densely packed wine expands on the back half, gaining in thickness without showing any impression of heaviness. Finishes with lush, fine-grained, oak-driven tannins, a distinctive stoniness, and insinuating length. Perhaps the oakiest of these wines today, and in need of extended cellaring.

Jancis Robinson Author: Jancis Robinson

This is the first wine in this line-up to have been raised exclusively in new oak. Deep and apparently glowing with health. Extremely rich and absorbing on the nose. Excitign, cherry-like fruit. Very transparent and energetic – what a vineyard! Racy, morello cherry fruit that invites you to see what glows through it. The oak is perceptible only at the very end of the palate. Long, flirtatious health juice.

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 170

With the 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques (which by its position in tastings here the Rousseaus conspicuously rate as grand cru) we arrive at the first wine that is matured in new wood. Pure, sweet, fresh black cherry fruit, marrowy and enveloping carnal richness, mysteriously enticing florality, low-toned, chalky minerality and accents of black tea and star anise are featured in this remarkably seamless wine. Meat, minerals and mystery dominate a finish that is profoundly layered yet preserves sheer palate-cleansing refreshment and positively vibrates with vividly fresh fruit intensity.
