DescriptionGevrey Chambertin 2005
Clos St. Jacques, A. Rousseau
"A ripe yet cool and wonderfully fresh nose is composed of mostly red berry fruit, discreet spice and earth, all of which is trimmed in an extremely subtle touch of oak. There is fine delineation and plenty of minerality on the utterly delicious middle weight flavors that are perhaps a bit less powerful than one might expect in the context of the vintage on the impeccably well-balanced and gorgeously long finish. This is a wonderfully harmonious effort that is very much still on the way up but among the 3 Rousseau 'big boys', this is the closest one to being able to enjoy now. That said, another 5 to 8 years will certainly return benefits." (94 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, June 2015)
