Gevrey Chambertin Clos Saint Jacques, Domaine Armand Rousseau 2002

Tasting Notes

A background note of new oak frames superbly complex aromatics of ripe and elegant red and black fruit aromas followed by round, dense, mineral-laden flavors that display excellent intensity from the mid-palate all the way to the lengthy backend. This is very sappy and completely coats and stains the palate with dusty tannins and a finish that lasts and lasts. Very impressive.

A last minute addition, Rousseau's 2002 Clos St. Jacques nearly stole the show (actually it did!), proving why it is revered among Burgundy lovers. Arguably one of the youngest and most vibrant wines of the evening, the Clos St. Jacques impressed for its intense fruit and phenomenal balance. It was the perfect ending to a fabulous night of food, wine and conversation.
