DescriptionDomaine Armand Rousseau Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St. Jacques, Burgundy, France 1996
ANTONIO GALLONIGood red-ruby. Altogether more vibrant, sexy nose combines cherry, plum, smoke, coffee, game and Cuban tobacco. Fleshy, round and elegant; a distinct step up in extract and volume. Really compelling sweetness of fruit. Very suave and very long on the finish, which features extremely fine tannins. A superb showing today.
BURGHOUNDThere is grand cru breed and elegance on the airy and perfumed nose that is turning toward the secondary while offering a lovely array of spice elements. The attractively sleek medium-bodied and finely detailed flavors aren't especially concentrated while evidencing an abundance of minerality on the slightly tangy but not really drying finish that delivers solid depth and length. In short, this is a fine if not truly outstanding Rousseau Clos St. Jacques that has arrived at full maturity though it should hold here for many years. Tasted many times over the years with mostly consistent notes.
