    May 17, 2014 - Deep dark color and nose of red fruits, this drinks great, well balanced, lush mouthful, light but all there, very long finish, more primary then tertiary but it just means a long long life to me

    May 5, 2014 - Red cherry up front, nice balance. Medium to long finish. Great terroir, earthy nose backed by great fruit typical of a Clos St Jacques. Tastes like you are at the vineyard. Still vibrant. Tasted at Daniel Restaurant, New York. Tastavin dinner

    April 2, 2014 - This bottle is showing more maturity than expected. The flavours are vegetal, with a note of violets, some sweetness, medium weight and an intense and persistent finish. There is certainly life in this, and complex, well-developed flavours, but on this showing I don't see it improving.

    January 17, 2014 - - Crimsom color with slow forming legs and aromas of raspberry, black currant and soy sauce. It's in total harmony and has flavours of butterscotch and black pepper with a medium body. Silky texture with a long finish.

    January 13, 2014 - bright fresh and lovely Rousseau elegance all over this wine - lifted aromas and well integrated oak on nose and palate - shows the elegance and freshness of Gevrey's higher slopes and has plenty of life in store - no hurry to drink this but not too young to enjoy. Lovely 1er cru - does not display Grand cru intensity but beautiful none-the-less

    (Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin Clos St. Jacques) The second wine was another that I had had within the past month, but this time the US bottle showed much better. This bottle of 1999 Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin Clos St. Jacques was very sulfury. There was barn, animal, cedar and hay behind it, and our host also found it ‘gassy.’ Touches of garden rounded out the nose, but the gas dominated, for sure. The flavors were more on the candied red fruit side with a hint of rust, along with popcorn. The bottle was not exactly right, as the glorious other bottle I recently had would attest. Somehow, too much sulfur made its way into a batch of this wine, and here was one of them

    (Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin Clos St. Jacques) The 1999 Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin Clos St. Jacques that followed was also extraordinary. Its fabulous nose was so good, possessing great aromatics. Sweet and pungent cherry red fruit, vitamins, musk, delicate cedar and perfume all came together in an overall meaty impression. The palate was rich and flavorful with tastes of spice, tea and sandbox. There was real depth here in this mouthful of a wine. While long and stylish, the Rousseau retained its elegance. Absolutely delicious (95).

    (Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru "Clos St. Jacques") This was great for the fifteen minutes it was open. After that this wine went into hibernation for the rest of the night. Glorious nose thought for a bit of deep red fruit, exotic spice and tons of wet earth plus nice spicey oak. Ripe and deep palate with some big tannins and glorious fruit. Long finish. Needs lots and lots of time. Decades. Great wine.
