    ($285) Good bright, dark red. Captivating aromas of red cherry liqueur, rose petal and smoky oak. Fine-grained and suave in the mouth, displaying more energy and finesse than the foregoing grand crus. The sharply delineated red fruit and spice flavors are nicely lifted by a floral topnote. Very intensely flavored wine with a broad, subtle finish and a serious tannic spine for aging.

    Here too there is a gentle touch of wood spice framing the more elegant and ultra refined high-toned red pinot fruit nose that also evidences ample minerality that continues onto the rich, sweet and sappy middle weight flavors that are almost delicate yet focused, pure and sneaky long as the flavor impact is really impressive. A strikingly intense wine of finesse and understatement in 2006.

    Mid transparent crimson. Low-key nose. Then wonderful purity on the palate. Tucked in for a long and glorious life.. Wonderful line through it. Great balance and lots of density.

    Packed with sweet fruit, this silky red exudes cherry, strawberry, licorice, sandalwood and mineral aromas and flavors. Despite its intensity, this remains lithe and refined, with excellent harmony and resonance on the long finish.

    Rousseau's 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques ' which received 75% new barrels this year, rather than 100% as in 2005 ' is strikingly pungent and bracing even in the nose, mingling fresh sour cherry, cherry pit, bitter-sweet herbal concentrate, iodine, peat, and hints of game. This attacks the palate as its aromas anticipated, and hints of black pepper and chalk add to the invigorating sense of grip. Even (as this was when I tasted it) prior bottling ' which at Rousseau involves pumping and bottling ' the overall impression here is relatively spare and delicate. But this offers a fine example of how this need not preclude sheer flavor intensity or energy, present in spades here. The finish is impressively pungent and piquant, and one can safely assume at least a decade of fascination is in store for the owners of bottles.

  • 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.
