Wine Description

(1988 Vintage) "The nose on the ’88 Clos St. Jacques is outstanding, offering up a mélange of black cherries, fraises du bois, grilled meats, herbs, coffee, sous bois and toasty oak. On the palate the wine is fullish, complex and intensely flavored, with a lovely core of sweet fruit, and a very long, meltingly tannic and bouncy finish of beautiful shape and grip. Just a lovely example of the vintage. 2006-2030...93." John Gilman 4/06

    Tasted blind at the annual ”Burgfest” tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint Jacques from Armand Rousseau has the most sensual nose of the quintet, perhaps the ripest with maraschino cherries, fresh strawberry and fruits pastilles. This is certainly the most generous nose. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, more modern in style but very pure and harmonious. The oak is a little more pronounced on the finish but that will be subsumed in time, and then it will be a Clos Saint Jacques that you’ll with you could drink every day.
