Phat Boy Dinner @ TheLedbury- clean fresh nose, showing sweet red fruits. Very smooth in the mouth and a great balance of acidity and fruits. 20 yrs on and I think the 93's are starting to weave together really well. This was a great pleasure to drink. A wine of finesse and strength

(Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin Clos St. Jacques) Jay wisely selected a 1993 Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin Clos St. Jacques. It was class in a glass and absolutely delicious. It was full but elegant with great fruit – black, red and purple were all there. Forest, earth, minerals all played their supporting roles perfectly in this superbly sippable wine. I could drink Rousseau’s Clos St. Jacques every day, it’s basically Chambertin gone wild, in that hot, feminine way (96).
(Rousseau Armand Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.Jacques) (From magnum) Medium-plus ruby-red colour. A deep, intense, meaty nose that starts with a slightly diffuse width. There is also a faint oaky component to the depth, but it’s mainly consumed now - with time the fruit really tightens and focuses. In the mouth this wine is still immensely youthful - 10 extra years would provide ample benefit - the acidity is like a roller-coaster into the finish, and a very impressive and intense finish it is too. Bravo, but still a baby.
