    Medium red. Deep aromas of plum, cherry, faded rose, mocha, animal fur and smoke. Lush, spicy and layered in the mouth, with red fruit and oak flavors of modest clarity. Longer and spicier on the finish, which shows considerably more wood tannins than Rousseau's '97 Ruchottes or Clos de la Roche, as well as a hint of unabsorbed acidity.

    Ruby shading to tawny. Very pale rim. Sweet, rich nose. But rather dried out on the palate. Pretty astringent. Where's the fruit? Desperately needs food.

    Simply stunning nose of Gevrey earth, complex red fruits and a certain unmistakable breed followed by rich, full, only moderately ripe flavors and a tight, intense, very persistent finish. This is a very pretty wine and is somewhat atypical of the vintage as it possesses both good acidity and avoids over ripeness. A first class success for the vintage. Consistent notes as another magnum opened recently was exactly like the wine described here.

    The ruby-colored 1997 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St. Jacques has a floral, black/red berry-scented nose. This silky-textured, medium-to-full-bodied, broad, complex, and expansive offering is flavored with jammy berry fruit. Its extremely long finish blossoms with additional layers of fruit in the oft-mentioned but rarely encountered |peacock's tail| effect.

    With little variation, the bottles from this case have been very consistent. This bottle had a pretty nose of ripe fruits, sous bois, and sauvage, with a touch of prune and tar thrown in. still quite tannic in the mouth but balanced by the still ample fruit and acidity. Not as complex as the best, but such an enjoyable wine.

Founded just over 100 years ago, Domaine Armand Rousseau is a family-run winery considered to be among the best in Burgundy. Rousseau owns some of the most prestigious plots in Gevrey-Chambertin, and the resulting wines present the perfect distillation of the time-honored traditional methods of winemaking in Burgundy. The formula is simple—superb vineyards plus old vines plus low yields. This translates into wines of outstanding concentration that achieve a Burgundian balance of essential elegance and striking purity.
