Lot #59. Armand Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1999

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97 NM.
"Tasted at The Glasshouse in South Africa. This might be turning out to be my favourite vintage of Clos Saint Jacques - this bottle better than any I remember. It has a sensational nose that is pure as you can imagine with blueberry, violets and crushed stone. The palate is so silky smooth with perfectly judged acidity. It hardly seems to have evolved since I last tasted it with an unerring sense of symmetry on the glycerine-tinged finish. Complete is the most apt word I can think of-followed by -delicious-. Tasted September 2012." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Mar 2013
Provenance: The Nantais Cellar
Notes: Very lightly scuffed capsule, nicked and very lightly scuffed label.
