    Light ruby. Not especially expressive - a bit lacking stuffing. Lean and not 100% clean. Pretty chewy. Very light. A whisper rather than a song. Dry finish.

    Lightly colored and precious little fruit on the nose and while the flavors are balanced, harmonious and certainly pleasant with acceptable depth and length, this is clearly not of grand cru quality. This will probably improve somewhat over the next few years but the lack of concentration and mid-palate density suggests it is best drunk on the young side. Tasted three times with consistent notes.

    Palish cherry red. Pungent aromas of tart red berries, framboise, eucalyptus and rhubarb. Sweet, fleshy and smooth, but offers only modest clarity and thrust for a '96. Finishes with rather light tannins and a suggestion of heat. Quite gently extracted.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

    This dark-colored wine may earn a score at the top of the range, if it gathers some more depth during its elevage. It displays a deep nose of super-sweet black cherries, and a pleasing, seductive, and medium-to-full-bodied character filled with delineated and pure flavors of candied raspberries and cherries. This spicy, silky-textured, expressive, and elegant wine concludes with a long, satiny finish.

  • Founded just over 100 years ago, Domaine Armand Rousseau is a family-run winery considered to be among 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 outstanding concentration that achieve a Burgundian balance of essential elegance and striking purity.
