Domaine Armand Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

With the 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques (which by its position intastings here the Rousseaus conspicuously rate as grand cru) we arrive at thefirst wine that is matured in new wood. Pure, sweet, fresh black cherry fruit,marrowy and enveloping carnal richness, mysteriously enticing florality,low-toned, chalky minerality and accents of black tea and star anise arefeatured in this remarkably seamless wine. Meat, minerals and mystery dominatea finish that is profoundly layered yet preserves sheer palate-cleansingrefreshment and positively vibrates with vividly fresh fruit intensity.Rousseau owns around one third of this great site, meaning that there are overa thousand cases of this phenomenal wine to ransack the marketplace in searchof, then sock away for at least a decade and preferably two. It is always thelast-harvested site, says Eric Rousseau, and in 2005 his roughly twenty veteranpickers could certainly afford to wait and richly rewarded us for it.
