Tasting Notes

It's no secret that this is the Rousseau CSJ is the finest example of its appellation and in 1999, it may very well have exceeded even its own lofty accomplishments. The color is remarkably black followed by a blast of intensely sappy pinot fruit, long, rich, powerful and earthy flavors all held together by extraordinary balance. This is just flat out reference standard CSJ. Though it does not often achieve this, in 1999, the CSJ is as good as the Bèze.

Score: 92/93Allen Meadows,, January 2009

The dark ruby-coloured 1999 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.Jacques has exuberant, sweet, blackberry fruit aromas. This medium to full-bodied wine has splendid amplitude to its mouth-coating, black cherry, oak, and cassis liqueur flavours. It is velvety-textured, lively, and boisterous. Drink it over the next 10-11 years.
