    (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.
