International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89Medium red. Reticent nose opens to reveal musky red berries and underbrush. Leanish but fresh, with attractive sweetness and modest flesh. Shows good balancing acidity, but lacks real grand cru volume and thrust.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2002
Burghound | Rating: 88Why a great domaine such as Rousseau can consistently fashion such brilliant results with some of their wines yet not this one is something that has perplexed me, and others, for years. 2000 will bring no answers either because even though this is very pure and fine, it lacks depth, density and focus even though I like the easy going personality and delicious flavors. However, do not expect anything profound.Drink Dates: 2006-10Issue: 1st Quarter, 2002
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.
