Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 87-89

($89; about two-thirds Mazoyeres and one-third Charmes) Medium red. Spicy red fruits, earth and a floral nuance on the nose. Sweeter than the foregoing samples, with red fruit and spice flavors and a supple texture. Not yet showing much nuance, though (Rousseau says it's too early to judge a wine like this). Finishes with nicely ripe tannins and good length.

Burghound | Rating: 87-89

Precocious, softly fragrant red pinot fruit aromas marry seamlessly with medium weight, round, nicely precise but at this point relatively simple flavors that offer only marginally more size and weight than the two 1ers though this does deliver sneaky persistence. If this adds complexity with bottle age, it should merit the upper end of the range.

About This Producer


Founded just over one hundred years ago, Domaine Armand Rousseau is a family run winery considered amongst 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 superb concentration that achieve a Burgundian balance of essential elegance and striking purity.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
