Vinous | Rating: 90The 2015 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a well-defined nose of morello cherry and crushed strawberry suffused with rose petals; it is one of the finest bouquets in this peer group flight, although it fails to articulate the promise it demonstrated in barrel. The medium-bodied palate offers supple tannin, crisp acidity, good focus and detail and a fine seam of mineralité on the finish. It just lacks a bit of substance and doesn’t quite possess the persistence you expect. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.Drink Dates: 2021 - 2034Author: Neal MartinIssue: Nov 2018
Wine Spectator | Rating: 95Flavors of spice, floral, tobacco and mineral swirl around the core of cherry in this intense, vivid red. The dusty tannins quickly assert themselves, yet the fruit, spice and mineral elements hold fast. Offers a tangy, mouthwatering finish. Best from 2023 through 2045. 275 cases made, 102 cases imported. — BSDrink Dates: 2023-2045Author: Bruce SandersonIssue: Apr 30, 2019
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, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
