The 2014 Gevrey-Chambertin from Armand Rousseau showcased the beauty of this true Burgundy lover’s vintage. It offered crisp, delineated raspberry and wild strawberry fruit laced with sous-bois. The palate displayed exquisite balance, obviously endowed with less concentration than the equivalent 2015 or 2016, yet nimble and lithe, and so precise and detailed on its carefree finish that you could easily misconstrue this as a premier cru. Wonderful. (NM)
A broad red, offering cherry and woodsy flavors and accents of spice and stone. Juicy and solid, with a long, spice- and cherry-laced finish. Best from 2020 through 2033
A more deeply pitched nose reflected ultra-fresh aromas of dark currant, pungent earth and plenty of sauvage character. There is both good richness and punch to the detailed middle weight flavors that avoid rusticity largely thanks to the fine-grain of the supporting tannins. This should drink well young if desired.
The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin Villages has a strict, stony bouquet with wet limestone notes percolating through the veneer of red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. There is not huge weight or concentration here, but it is very well balanced and poised with a taut, minerally finish that is linear and fresh. Very fine. (NM)
The “other” 2014 Domaine Rousseau Gevrey villages is also excellent in this vintage, offering up a more red fruity and elegant profile in its aromatic constellation of strawberries, cherries, incipient notes of grilled meat, dark soil tones, mustard seed and a pungent topnote of roses. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and a tad more reserved in personality than the Clos du Château, with a lovely core, fine-grained tannins and a long, tangy and transparent finish. Lovely juice. (Drink between 2019-2040)
Good bright red. Sexy, very ripe Gevrey-typical aromas of dark cherry, spices and game show an almost candied quality. Boasts lovely silky texture for this village wine, with red fruit and spice flavors leading to a ripely tannic if slightly edgy finish. This should be a relatively easygoing wine with early appeal.
