Discreet wood sets off ultra-fresh and airy aromas of red currant, blue berries and plum that are trimmed in hints of wet stone and earth. There is a refined mouth feel to the mineral-tinged middle weight flavors that possess an appealing verve along with superb detail on the harmonious and exceptionally persistent finish. This is textbook.

Good full red. Spicy red berries, cherry, licorice and a hint of horseradish on the nose. Juicy, brisk and taut; not hugely fleshy but energetic and penetrating. Conveys an impression of density without weight in the manner of the best 2011s. Tightly wound and very backward, finishing with terrific spicy persistence. Eric Rousseau bottled his 2011s in April of 2013; his bottles now have the domain name embossed on the bottom of the glass.

The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St Jacques was raised in 70% new oak. It has a ripe floral bouquet with red cherries, a touch of creme de cassis and violets once again all wrapped up in that nicely assimilated. Oak The palate is crisp and forward on the entry. This is not the most complex Clos Saint Jacques that I have tasted at this stage, but it is nicely focused with a precise, animated finish. It needs to show a little more character and personality within a couple of years.

Rousseau's 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St. Jacques is flat-out gorgeous. Waves of blue/purplish fruit hit the palate in an intense, explosive Burgundy loaded with pure class and pedigree. This is another 2011 that is going to need considerable time in bottle to come around. Today, the Clos St. Jacques impresses for its richness, power and depth.
