Colourful, characterful, fairly full-bodied. All the component parts, rich extract, well modulated tannins and acidity.

What a sexy and exotic red Burgundy. Backward and unforgiving now, this wine is nonetheless packed with dense, ripe black cherry, plum and well-integrated oak flavors that fan out on the long finish. Very powerful, very intense, very masculine,

Armand Rousseau

The Armand Rousseau estate was founded at the beginning of the 20th century by Armand Rousseau. The estate includes more than 15 hectares of vines including 8.5 hectares of Grands Crus and 3.8 hectares of Premier Crus vinified in sustainable agriculture. The soils of the vineyards are limestone and clay-limestone.


The Armand Rousseau estate produces six emblematic Burgundy Grands Crus: Chambertin, Charmes Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Ruchottes Chambertin, Mazy Chambertin and Clos de la Roche. The wine is aged in 100% new oak barrels for Chambertin Clos de Bèze. The Clos Saint Jacques is put in barrels between 70% and 100% depending on the vintage. All the other grands crus are aged in one-wine barrels. The barrels come from the forests of Allier and their burning is medium. The aging period is 20 months during which two rackings are carried out. Bottling usually takes place in April after a light filtration of cleanliness on the plate in order to preserve the delicate fruit of the Pinot Noir. The setting is made by gravity, directly from the barrels after assembly.


The wines of the Armand Rousseau estate have a long aging potential: 15 years for the premiers crus and 20 for the grands crus.
