Lot #55. Armand Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1978

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: . CC.
"In the Armand Rousseau cellar you are given the Saint-Jacques to taste after the Clos de la Roche, Ruchottes and Mazis, and the Saint-Jacques is awarded a higher percentage of new oak. It is always the best of the wines . . . . This is a wine of real depth and dimension, slightly lusher and plumper than the two greatest Gevrey wines, but no less classy, no less inspiring. It is clearly head and shoulders above all the other Gevrey premiers crus." Clive Coates MW, The Wines of Burgundy (C) 2008
Provenance: The Rose Cellar
Notes: 5cm, soiled and lightly scuffed capsule, bin soiled, lightly damp stained, lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $2,000
