  • Burghound | Rating: 87

    Elegant and pretty red pinot fruit that is still entire primary and cut with subtle traces of earth notes leads to light weight, nicely intense but slightly dilute flavors that offer good detail but only fair length and complexity. Candidly, this is perhaps not at its normal quality level for what is usually a pretty nice villages. I would be inclined to drink this now for its fruit though there is no reason that it could not be held further. Consistent notes.

    This ruby-colored wine has fresh, spicy, and candied strawberry aromas that lead to an oily-textured, glycerine-feeling, medium-bodied, and appealing core of black raspberries and cherries. It is a well-made, simple, and delightful wine for drinking over the next 3 years.

  • 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.
