RATINGS

94-96Vinous / IWC

...intense red fruit, rose petal and undergrowth aromas...tangible marine influence at play here. The palate is medium-bodied with very good structure. Elegant and poised toward the finish, which leaves hints of tobacco and truffle on the aftertaste. Superb.

93-95The Wine Advocate

Aromas of sweet berry fruit, rich forest floor, smoked meats, wild plums and licorice...medium to full-bodied, pretty and fine-boned rendition... Velvety but precise, it's built around bright acids and sumptuous tannins.

18.5Jancis Robinson

Very powerful nose, then lovely sweet fruit. Dances on the palate and very sweet and charming already with a fine spine.

91-94Burghound.com

...wonderfully spicy nose consists of ripe aromas of poached plum, violet, the sauvage, newly turned humus-suffused earth and slightly more evident wood. The middle weight plus flavors possess excellent intensity and muscle along with plenty of minerality that becomes more apparent on the beautifully long finish where the only nit is a trace of warmth.

PRODUCER

Armand Rousseau

Domaine Armand Rousseau is a 35-acre estate in Gevrey-Chambertin, in Burgundy. It was founded in the early 20th century by Armand Rousseau who inherited vineyards then added more vineyards through marriage. By the standards of the region, Domaine Rousseau was a pioneer in bottling its own wine. It was bottling under its own name in the 1920s and began exporting. Today the domaine is run by Armand’s son and grandson and exports nearly 80% of the 65,000 bottles a year produced. Grand Crus produced are Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Beze, Ruchottes-Chambertin, Mazy-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin and Clos de Roche. Several Premier Crus are also produced. Clive Coates calls the domaine’s wines “vigorous and very classy…Moreover, they are all quite distinctive, each an expression of its own terroir. This is superb winemaking…”

The legendary Lalou Bize of Maison Leroy is one of the smaller landholders with about .6 of an acre. There are some 30 proprietors with parcels in Mazis-Chambertin. The largest are Hospices de Beaune, with 4.38 acres; Bernard Dugat-Py, with 3.05 acres; and Joseph Faiveley, with 3 acres.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
