A rich, solidly built red, with expressive aromas of exotic spices, sandalwood and toasty oak that lead to cherry, black currant and tobacco flavors. Balanced, with a dusting of medium tannins on the long finish. Best from 2023.
The Rousseau holdings are located next to the wall of the Clos and the warmer meso-climate means that the grapes are often the first to be picked in the Premier Cru. This is a rich, exotic wine that was aged in 80% new wood but 'could handle 100%', according to Cyrielle Rousseau. Floral and ginger spicy, with red berry fruit, some underlying grip and a thread of minerality.
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru has an ethereal bouquet with dark cherry, blueberry, light wilted rose petal and shucked oyster shell scents. It unfolds beautifully in the glass, possibly the classiest and more alluring of the CSJ quintet. The palate is well balanced with finely-chiselled red cherry fruit intermixed with raspberry, crushed stone and a dab of spice. Harmonious through to the structured finish. The mineralité shines through this wine.
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques has turned out brilliantly in bottle. Unwinding in the glass with notes of red berries, cassis and peonies, mingled with hints of woodsmoke, raw cocoa, orange rind and exotic spices. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, structured around ripe, powdery tannins, it's layered and lively, maintaining impeccable balance in this warm vintage. Long and penetrating, this is more tightly wound in bottle than it was from barrel—something that bodes very well for its long-term evolution.
An attractively fresh nose features cool and relatively high-toned red cherry, pomegranate and hints of rose petal, the sauvage and humus, all of which is trimmed in admirably discreet wood influence. The mouthfeel of the precise, intense, equally fine and mineral-driven medium weight flavors is remarkably sophisticated, all wrapped in an impressively long and superbly complex finish that flashes focused power. This is terrific and should age accordingly as it's very firm and compact. *Burghound Outstanding!*
