(two-thirds from Mazoyeres): Good full medium red. Expressive nose melds redcurrant, mocha, rust, minerals and flowers, plus a suggestion of game birds. Sweet, smoky and nicely concentrated, with a musky quality to the complex flavors of redcurrant, smoky minerality, mocha and game. Finishes with supple tannins and excellent length. Very Gevrey.

About This Producer


Founded just over one hundred years ago, Domaine Armand Rousseau is a family run winery considered amongst the best in Burgundy. Rousseau owns some of the most prestigious plots in Gevrey-Chambertin, and the resulting wines present the perfect distillation of the time-honored traditional methods of winemaking in Burgundy. The formula is simple - superb vineyards plus old vines plus low yields. This translates into wines of superb concentration that achieve a Burgundian balance of essential elegance and striking purity.
