Rousseau, Armand - Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques 2001
Tasting Notes and Scores
Knockout aromas of wonderfully intense black and red cherry fruit loaded with cassis and a touch of new oak introduce medium-bodied, sweet, harmonious, very expressive and long flavors all underpinned by racy minerality and firm structure. The tannins are prominent but ripe and the density of extract is impressive and this both coats and stains the palate. As it always does, this delivers finesse with real mid-palate punch with near perfect grace. Be sure and serve this cool as the alcohol becomes noticeable if it becomes a bit too warm.
