  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    Pale-medium red; lacks saturation. Spicy aromas of leather and game. Pliant and aromatic in the mouth, with sweet cherry and raspberry fruit and suggestions of spicy oak. A bit fresher and deeper than the Cazetiers.

    Slightly grey crimson with a very pale rim. Very light nose. Very light cherry flavours and lots of acidity. Rather austere on the palate. Definitely not charming! But again, this may be the cussed young Rousseau problem (see note on the Cazetiers 2004).

    There is a bit more aromatic complexity here and the nose is certainly prettier but somewhat surprisingly, it's not necessarily any finer nor is there more fruit concentration to the sweet, delicious and generous middle weight flavors that offer reasonably good depth but this is more solid 1er quality than a true grand cru.

  • 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.

    Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
