Gevrey Chambertin Lavaux Saint Jacques, Domaine Armand Rousseau 2020

Tasting Notes

This is also exuberantly fresh with more floral influences and notably better layering of dark currant, earth and a wisp of the sauvage. I very much like the texture of the bigger, richer and more muscular flavors that flash both good power and minerality on the robust, lengthy and built-to-age finish. This is a very fine LSJ that is also worth checking out.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (85), January 2022

Mingling aromas of sweet berry fruit and cherries with hints of forest floor, black truffle, burning embers and warm spices, Rousseau's 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques is medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated, with an especially intense, tightly wound profile for a cuvée that's often rather delicate. Concluding with a long, penetrating finish, it shows considerable potential.
