Domaine Armand Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin Clos St. Jacques 2015
WS97: Supple and fluid, this red features intense black currant, blackberry, spice, sandalwood, licorice and iron flavors. Sleek and well-integrated, with a very long aftertaste.
VM97: The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques 1er Cru has more fruit intensity than Jean-Marie Fourrier's (implying just a slightly later picking, perhaps), offering copious black plum, raspberry, sous-bois and subtle tobacco scents that are beautifully defined. The palate totally delivers: harmonious, succinct, beautifully structured, with perfect acidity that imparts a disarming sense of symmetry, and brilliantly articulated terroir expression on the sustained finish. Bon vin, très bon vin. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
