Domaine Armand Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques 2014
|Appellation||Cote de Nuits|

Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, Rousseau's 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint Jacques has a very refined and delineated bouquet with prudent use of new oak here that is seamlessly integrated and allows the vibrant red fruit to flourish. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, very good tension and a welcome dash of spice toward the finish that conveys genuine substance and class. The aftertaste is incredibly long-the mouth tingling with residual spiciness long after the wine has departed. This is stunning and, dare I suggest, equal to Rousseau's Chambertin and Clos de Bèze. Tasted September 2017.
Wine Spectator Sleek and focused, delivering currant, wild cherry, rose hip and mineral flavors, this red offers a core of ripe fruit notes that keep it grounded, and well-integrated tannins provide balance. Fine length. Best from 2021 through 2036.
