Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques from Rousseau has an elegant bouquet with pure red cherry, sous-bois and rose petal scents that blossom in the glass. Just gorgeous! The palate is very well balanced with crisp tannin, very well judged acidity with raspberry, redcurrant and plenty of spice towards the beautifully composed, elegant but quite powerful finish. Top class. Tasted September 2016. Drink 2018 - 2038.

This is notably ripe with its expressive and attractively cool nose of black cherry and raspberry, earth, floral and discreet spice elements. The palate impression is impressively rich with excellent volume along with plenty of the hallmark minerality suffusing the sleek, refined and gorgeously long if markedly firm finish. This terrific effort displays a really lovely interplay between power and finesse and I particularly like the harmony of structural elements. Drink from 2030.
