A last minute addition, Rousseau's 2002 Clos St. Jacques nearly stole the show (actually it did!), proving why it is revered among Burgundy lovers. Arguably one of the youngest and most vibrant wines of the evening, the Clos St. Jacques impressed for its intense fruit and phenomenal balance. It was the perfect ending to a fabulous night of food, wine and conversation. (AG)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 96 points

Tasted blind in Hong Kong, the Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint Jacques 2002 from Rousseau is just a sublime expression of the vineyard and the style of the domaine. The bouquet offers startling delineation with red cherries, crushed strawberry, wet limestone and rose petals. The palate is elegant and refined in keeping with the more understated style of the vintage, the acidity finely tuned and with a gradual crescendo of red berry and mineral notes that fan out in consummate fashion on the finish. It's just a beautiful wine that is now at a beautiful stage of its life. Irresistible!
