August 15, 2014 - A 59th birthday wine that did not let us down. I think TZ scored this 86-89pts??? Fine by me as it helped depress the market price a decent amount. Most people are all hung up on the "big 3" / now the "big 4" from Rousseau but I find this wine a very very close 2nd cousin to the Ruchottes and drinking better than the CSJ would at this young age. The CSJ would still be showing a lot of oak right now. This wine delivers all of the marvelous purity of fruit and ethereal structure that is signature for Rousseau. This not a huge wine but rather very intellectual and intriguing. I quickly bought the last btls today. This is only a minor step down from the Rousseau Grands. Someday the critics will be bold enough to give this wine the scores it deserves. Paid $112 and drinks like $200 plus. Unfortunately this store no longer gets any Rousseau and this was the last they had. PnP

January 15, 2011 - I find this one notch better than the 07. This is a very good Gevrey but somehow I always expect more from Rousseau.

(Rousseau Armand Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St.Jacques) Again, medium-pale colour. A very ‘together’ if understated nose. Less obviously effusive in the mouth versus the villages, but there is an added mineral aspect. Super length, but today you’ll find more to enjoy in the villages.
