One of the greatest names in all of Burgundy, dating back to the 1930s when Armand was one of the first of five domaines to defy the negociants and bottle their own wine. The Rousseau name is synonymous with Gevrey-Chambertin; Armand passed the reins to Charles who on retirement passed control to his son Eric.
When the case has arrived back I will let you know The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux Saint-Jacques 1er Cru has a gorgeous, pure bouquet with perfumed raspberry, cranberry and pomegranate aromas that are beautifully entwined with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity and whilst there is a patina of oak to be assimilated, it feels as if it is singing from the same hymn sheet as the fruit. Class, class, class. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. Date Tasted: Oct 2019; Rating: 94 Points; Neal Martin; Vinous
