2017 Domaine Armand Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin


Domaine Armand Rousseau is one of the most famous and best domaines in Burgundy. Based in Gevrey-Chambertin, the estate is formed of just over 15 hectares, over half of which is Grand Cru.

This is one of Burgundy’s greatest domaines – in terms of history, vineyard holdings and quality of wine. The original Armand Rousseau was at the forefront of the first wave of domaine bottling in the 1930s. He was succeeded by his son Charles in 1959, shortly after they had bought a significant slice of the Clos St Jacques vineyard. Today Eric, grandson of Armand, is in charge of the vines and cellar, with the help of his daughter Cyrielle.

The domaine produces pale, finely structured wines of great elegance and stamina. The simple principle of old (but not ancient) vines and sensible yields dictates the Rousseau style. Sometimes the wines can appear light in their youth, but they nearly always take on weight as they age.

A more deeply pitched and slightly earthier nose introduces more concentrated medium weight flavors that also possess better depth on the delicious and caressing finish. There is better underlying material and this should reward up to a decade of cellaring.

89 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Unfurling in the glass with notes of raw cocoa, blackcurrants, sweet spices, vanilla pod and cedary oak, Rousseau’s 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Village is medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety, with succulent acids and powdery structuring tannins, concluding with an expansive, lactone-inflected finish. It’s deeper and richer than I perceived it to be when I tasted it 2018, but it’s also surprisingly strongly marked by its time in barrel—especially since this cuvée sees no new oak.
