    Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques from Rousseau has an elegant bouquet with pure red cherry, sous-bois and rose petal scents that blossom in the glass. Just gorgeous! The palate is very well balanced with crisp tannin, very well judged acidity with raspberry, redcurrant and plenty of spice towards the beautifully composed, elegant but quite powerful finish. Top class.

    Tasting note: This is notably ripe with its expressive and attractively cool nose of black cherry and raspberry, earth, floral and discreet spice elements. The palate impression is impressively rich with excellent volume along with plenty of the hallmark minerality suffusing the sleek, refined and gorgeously long if markedly firm finish. This terrific effort displays a really lovely interplay between power and finesse and I particularly like the harmony of structural elements.

    Beautiful open perfume. A white-wine purity and stoniness to the palate. This is very distinguished. (AH) - Alex Hunt

    Good deep red. Much less reduced on the nose than Ruchottes, offering captivating, high-pitched perfume of raspberry, rose petal, blood orange and crushed stone. On the palate, the tangy raspberry, red cherry and mineral flavors show a penetrating character and superb lift without any weightiness or hardness. Finishes with very fine-grained tannins and mounting floral perfume. This brisk, cool, aristocratic wine is built for a graceful evolution in bottle. - Stephen Tanzer

  • 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.
