As it always is, this delivers remarkable elegance and completely harmoniousaromas of red fruit, oak spices and Gevrey earth with almost the sameincredible complexity as the Ruchottes. There is however even better power anddrive with outstanding acid/fruit balance and seamless integration. Iespecially like the purity, precision and focus. Another great Rousseau ClosSt. Jacques in a seemingly unending string of them. Terrific juice. (90-92 points, Alen Meadows - Burghound.com - Jan 02)
International Wine CellarGood bright medium red. Sexy aromas of red cherry, raspberry, licorice and smoky oak. Lush and sweet, with the concentration and volume to support the substantial new oak. Nicely framed and pure, with serious tannic support. Long and ripe on the back end.
