2018 Domaine Armand Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Clos du Château’


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 ripe and pretty mix features notes of red and dark berries along with abundant earth and underbrush nuances. There is good richness and volume to the nicely intense middle weight flavors where the lingering finish possess slightly better depth than it typically does.

88-90 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos du Château is the finest rendition of this bottling that Rousseau has produced to date. Offering up an inviting bouquet of sweet red berries, candied peel, raw cocoa and loamy soil, it’s medium to full-bodied, lively and fine-boned, with more concentration than preceding vintages and good length on the sapid, nicely defined finish.
