Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Incredibly fresh and vibrant, with a core of blackberry, cassis, spice and mineral aromas and flavors matched by a dense, firm structure. Balanced, yet needs time to integrate. A beam of violet bursts through on the finish. 76 cases imported.

Burghound | Rating: 90-92

A subtle touch of wood spice frames elegant, pure and moderately ripe red pinot fruit aromas that possess nuances of plum, cassis and clove that lead to very round, supple and pretty middle weight flavors underpinned by buried structure and a stunningly complex and beautifully long finish. This is not a big or powerful wine but it brings a strikingly pretty combination of finesse, complexity and inner mouth feel. Stylish and classy.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($111) Good medium red. Sexy red berries, smoked meat, coffee, underbrush, truffle and spicy oak on the nose. Very ripe but initially tight, with good spine and a high pitch to its sappy red berry flavors. Slightly roasted for this cuvee but kept fresh by sound acidity. Very concentrated, long wine. Finishes with firm but very fine tannins and excellent palate-coating persistence.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

The sweet black cherry-scented 2003 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques is medium to full- bodied, rich, and boasts outstanding depth in its blackberry-laced core. Expansive and lush on the attack, its long finish reveals firm, almost rustic tannin that are worrisome.

Dark purplish crimson. Not dark but notably blueish. Broad and silky and pretty complete. Not even the merest hint of sweetness, funnily enough, but real class and life. Real zest. Not massive – in fact blind I wouldn’t guess it were from this especially ripe vintage. Well done. Notable but not excessive tannins.

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 superb concentration that achieve a Burgundian balance of essential elegance and striking purity.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
