Worked using sustainable methods, the old vines of the Premier Cru Clos Saint-Jacques of this iconic Gevrey domain produce a well-balanced wine with a clear blackcurrant and musk expression. More info
Clos Saint-Jacques Premier Cru is named after a statue of Saint James that was found in the area on the pilgrimage route to Compostela. This powerful and intense Pinot needs to age for 10-20 years to deliver its full potential. After this many years in the cellar it is an absolutely tremendous wine.
The domain was established in 1902 by Armand Rousseau who, when he reached adulthood, inherited several parcels of vines situated in the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin, in Burgundy. Over the years, he continued to expand his domain by purchasing Grands Crus such as Clos de la Roche, Mazis Charmes or even Chambertin. In 1954, he bought the First Growth Clos-Saint-Jacques in the name of his son Charles. It is now Eric, the son of Charles, and grandson of Armand who runs the domain. Producing exclusively red wines, the domain has established itself with its legendary cuvées such as Lavaux Saint Jacques or Chambertin as one of Burgundy’s icons. The most beautiful expressions of Pinot Noir are undoubtedly in these wines.
