Domaine Armand Rousseau
Considered the most famous Gevrey-Chambertin property in the world, Domaine Armand Rousseau is highly celebrated for their vinous history, outstanding holdings and above all, their quality wines. Domaine Armand Rousseau dates back to the early the 20th century, when founder, Armand Rousseau crafted his first bottlings in the 1930s. His son, Charles later took control of the property and further enlarged production. Charles led the estate for over 40 years, before passing down the property to his children, Eric and Brigitte. Today, Eric is in charge of the domaine’s viticulture and viniculture, with the help of his daughter, Cyrielle. The property is home to 14 hectares of vines, 8 of which are planted exclusively to Pinot Noir and are Grands Crus. Here, the old-aged vines and reasonable yields give Rousseau wines their classic, typical style. Domaine Armand Rousseau continues to produce wines that seem somewhat light in their youth, but take on weight as they age, making them the perfect bottles to cellar for several of years. The domaine’s top wines, Chambertin and Chambertin Clos-de-Béze, represent the great potential of Burgundy’s Grands Crus vineyards. These wines, along with the Gevrey-Chambertin Clos-Saint-Jacques label, receive 100% new oak and are characterized as the greatest productions in Burgundy.
