    (aged in 80% new oak; for the past few years, Rousseau has vinified the upper and lower sections of his holding separately, then combined the two, although he still had a barrel of each held aside at the time of my visit): The blend:Vibrant dark red color. Aromas of raspberry and red licorice complicated by curry spices; plenty of oak showing. Wonderfully plush and sweet on entry, then juicy and youthfully imploded in the mid-palate, showing a fine-grained texture and outstanding verve to the flavors of raspberry, rose petal, spices, coffee and minerals. Already amazingly rich and tactile, this beauty finishes with outstanding energy, powerful backbone and rising length. (I also tasted both components of this wine; while both were outstanding, the one from the upper part of the slope showed uncanny energy and piquant floral and blood orange character. In a perfect world, it would be my everyday drinking wine. )

    A discreet but not invisible touch of wood sets off a more deeply pitched and intensely floral nose that in particular displays notes of violet and lavender along with plum, black cherry, spice and gentle earth scents. There is again excellent volume to the sleek but powerful and concentrated middle weight plus flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the moderately austere finish that delivers flat out superb persistence. While this gorgeously classy effort will also require extended keeping to reach its apogee, it contrasts with the grands crus in that it should be approachable after only 6 to 8 years of bottle age.

    The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint Jacques will be aged in 80% new oak, although my sample came from a new barrel. It has a very perfumed, voluminous bouquet with billowing red berry fruit, rose petals and subtle flinty aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine saline entry. You can feel the mouth tingling here with wonderful tension and poise on the sustained finish. This is a more linear |CSJ| than recent vintages, but no less entrancing. It challenges the Clos de BAze for the silver medal behind the Chambertin."

  • 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.
