    June 12, 2017 - Surprised the hell out of me with the elegance, red fruit, purity, and lack of oak. This is in the beginning of a nice drinking window. There is a bit of mint and coolness to this that makes it endearing. This 99 is not closed and the best is yet to come. My WOTN and IMO better than the 02 Rousseau Clos de Beze at this time. Exhibits that beautiful power without weight.

    June 3, 2017 - Just so incredibly beautiful! I am torn between rating it 96 and 97, I know many rated it 97. From a pristine bottle (of two) bought by me upon release, I know it had perfect provenance. And it showed! I had the other bottle in 2007 where it outperformed a great 1999 Grivot Richebourg, so my expectations were high! And they were met. This showcases why you age the greatest wines, I suppose, though nothing was out of place ten years ago either. That still goes, as this wine is resolved, yet full of energy, tension and nerve with seemingly at least ten and probably closer to twenty years still left in it. Displaying a great and complex mix of primary and tertiary flavours with the secondary winemaking related notes only playing beautifully background. Great bottle. Why did I only buy two again?

    April 28, 2017 - Miscellaneous Wines from a France Trip-Burgundy, Alsace, and Paris; 4/20/2017-4/29/2017: Impressively deep ruby. Some brettanomyces and black fruit on the nose to start. Hulking, tannic, and backward at first with imposing acidity. This awakened with air and blossomed with a duck dish, becoming remarkably sweeter and sappier, and showing deep cherry fruit along with its earthy core. This too has that unmistakable orange peel lift. The last sip was definitely best, and I look forward to trying the dregs tomorrow. I think this all the makings of great wine, and for me, the best of the 3 Rousseau wines we had over the past week. That is saying something when the other 2 were Grand Crus!

    Still full of vigor the next day. One for long aging.

    April 1, 2017 - Simply beautiful wine. Very pretty but powerful. There are notes of meat and earth coupled with black fruits and an engaging thread of flora. It is full, complex and luscious in the mouth with a velvety texture and great volume. Concentration and length are superb. Pretty close to wine of the day for mine.

    November 11, 2016 - Tightly wound with a beautiful earthy cherry perfume. Deep dark cherry fruit with notes of licorice and forest floor on the palate. Finishes tight and crisp with good mineral crunch. Classic Rousseau style and this is still young but very promising. 94+

    (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.
