Rousseau 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin "Cazetiers" - $299.99
"Strong reduction flattens the nose but there is excellent verve to the rich, intense and solidly powerful middle weight flavors that display really lovely detail and nuance on the firmly structured and moderately austere finish. I very much like the interplay of the fruit against the structural elements and this should amply reward at least a decade of cellaring. Good juice and worth considering." Burghound 90-93 points.
Rousseau 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin "Clos St. Jacques" - $749.99
"Discreet wood sets off ultra-fresh and airy aromas of red currant, blue berries and plum that are trimmed in hints of wet stone and earth. There is a wonderfully refined mouth feel to the mineral-tinged middle weight flavors that possess an appealing verve along with superb detail on the harmonious and exceptionally persistent finish. This very firm effort is textbook Clos St, Jacques." Burghound 94 points.
Rousseau 2011 Ruchottes - $549.95
"An adroit application of wood frames cool, pure and restrained dark berry fruit, truffle and spice aromas. There is good richness and volume to the intensely mineral-driven flavors that terminate in a beautifully complex, lengthy and impeccably well-balanced finish. This is very classy and should be excellent in due course." Burghound 93 points
