2014 Domaine Armand Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Lavaux St-Jacques"

SKU #1307630 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Walks a fine line between richness and lively structure, which provides a taut matrix for the cherry, currant, floral and stone flavors. Shows overall poise and balance, with a long, detailed finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint Jacques unfurls on the nose with red cherry and raspberry scents, a touch of bergamot in the background. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry. You are immediately struck by the fineness of the tannin here. Real energy and tension from the word go, with a lovely touch of cracked black pepper furnishing the finish. I have a penchant for this over the Cazetiers this year - perhaps to my surprise given the form of the latter in 2014. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2014 Lavaux St. Jacques and Cazetiers were really showing well at the time of my visit and these may well be the finest renditions I have tasted of these two premier crus chez Rousseau. The 2014 Lavaux offers up a simply gorgeous bouquet of sappy red and black cherries, raw cocoa, black minerality, woodsmoke, gamebird and just a whisper of vanillin oak (from its one and two wine casks, as it saw no new wood). On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully sappy at the core, with lovely mineral drive on the backend, fine-grained tannins and outstanding focus and balance on the complex, creamy and vibrant finish. A beautiful wine. Inner quote mark (12/2016)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is compositionally similar to the straight Gevrey villages if perhaps slightly more complex. The cool, restrained and intensely mineral-driven medium weight flavors exude a refreshing salinity on the mildly austere, balanced, firmer and highly persistent finish. Inner quote mark (1/2016)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Lovely perfume. Very flattering indeed. Quite marked acidity but by no means skinny. Super charming. But with structure too. Very successful. Grainy stuff – long and pure. Always the last to be picked. Superb. (JR) 17.5/20 points Inner quote mark (11/2015)

Vinous

Outer quote mark Healthy dark red. Deep nose displays sappy, liqueur-like red fruit ripeness and an element of smoked meat. Fine-grained and saline, communicating lovely sweetness and lift to the flavors of raspberry, dried flowers and game. Nicely filled in for this wine chez Rousseau, offering an attractive crunchy fruit character. Finishes with smooth tannins and seductive lingering fruit. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2016)

K&L Notes

93pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Medium deep colour with some density. Powerful fruit from the start on the nose, but not over extracted. Delicious dark cherry notes, good acidity behind, still the freshness of the Combe. Excellent finish. Tasted: September 2017."
