Tasted from bottle, Rousseau's 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Village opens in the glass with a youthfully reserved bouquet of wild berry fruit, plums, peonies and orange rind mingled with suggestions of forest floor and cedar. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and sapid, with lively acids, good depth at the core and fine structuring tannins that subtly assert themselves on the finish. Even this communal bottling—which contains declassified premier cru fruit—is quite introverted at this stage, and readers with bottles in their cellars are advised to forget them for the better part of a decade.

Offering a mix of savory and fruity aromas, this red reveals sandalwood, cedar, strawberry and cherry notes. Elegant and detailed, this remains vibrant and harmonious through the lingering finish. Drink now through 2033.
This is much more deeply pitched and pungently earth with its array of very fresh red and dark berries that carry whiffs of earth and the sauvage. The rich, round and attractively textured medium-bodied flavors possess better depth and persistence as well as notably better underlying material. Note that this well-made effort is going to require at least a few years of patience first.
The 2016 Gevrey AC was showing very prettily at the time of my visit, offering up a perfumed bouquet of red plums, cherries, chocolate, a nice base of soil, woodsmoke and a spicy topnote. On the palate the wine is fullish, plush and quite long on the finish, with a sappy core, laid back tannins and plenty of early complexity showing. I assume this will firm up a bit as the temperatures in the cellar continue to fall over the course of the coming months and the wine will be lovely. (Drink between 2021-2050)
(this wine includes premier cru fruit from Clos Prieur and Estournelles Saint-Jacques, as well as grapes from five village parcels): Medium red. Red cherry and raspberry aromas are complicated by savory soil scents. A step up in complexity and plushness from the Clos du Château, conveying lovely sweetness and salty mineral notes to its energetic red fruit and earth flavors. This seamless, fully ripe village wine spreads out to saturate the palate on the ripely tannic, echoing finish.(ST)
