The 2005 Gevrey AC from the Rousseaus is once again a lovely bottle, as it offers up a deep, bright and very complex bouquet of raspberries, red cherries, a touch of grilled meat, mustard seed, spices, Gevrey black minerals and a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and racy, with excellent focus, a juicy kernel of fruit at the core, and great tangy acids on the very long, soil-driven and modestly tannic finish. Simply delicious. (Drink between 2006-2015)
A lovely and expressive nose that is unusually broad relative to its normal backward state features a pretty mix of red, black and violet earth-infused aromas that lead to rich, supple and round flavors that possess good depth and a nervy and racy finish, all wrapped in a nicely long finish.
The domaine’s 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin represents a union of fruit from many different parcels south and east of town for which the fruit was de-stemmed. Flatteringly sweetly-fruited, indeed subtly candified on the nose and palate, it offers a roasted underlying meatiness and subtle hints of caramelization continuing with a satisfyingly sweetly-rich, gentle finish. In short, as is the proprietor’s intent, this is “supple and agreeable” not to mention reeking of vintage-typical ripeness. (DS)
The 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin captures the richness of the year in its pliant, open personality. Wonderfully dense and expressive, especially for a village-level wine, the 2005 is drinking beautifully today. Worn-in leather, spices, tobacco and dried dark cherries meld into the succulent, expressive finish. This is a terrific village-level offering from Rousseau. (AG)
