A deep colour and a very opulent, perfumed nose; rich, slightly sweet fruit on the palate and some residual tannin. Good length. This is very good now, but will probably develop further over the next 5, even 10, years.

Brooding, rootish , stewed red autumnal fruits , sous bois and leather. A mixed bag of chambolle, morey and gevrey I thought. Mid weight on the palate with a silky smoothness to the delivery.

Smoky, some funk and earth, fully resolved, a lovely old Gevrey really, but it lacks some of that Rousseau luminosity that I'd hoped for

2001 Armand Rousseau Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru Clos De Ruchottes

Decanted, servering temp 16 celsius.
Aired for 2 hours prior to tasting.

Medium minus dark rubi red. Touch of ageing color on the rim. Clear and clean color.

Wonderfull rich nose. Smoke/tobaco, dark truffles, mushrooms and wet forest floot. Ripe fruits, cherries. Strawberries? Spices and herbs. It has this sweet/sauor like aroma, with salt and cold greens lying in the far back. The typ I can smell and smell, and still find something. Layers and layers.

Mouth is supricingly rounded and mild. Tannins are fine tuned and integrated. Feels balanced and has perfect mix of acidity and sweetnes. Easy to drink, yet komplex and with a punch of solid craftmanship. Ripe cherries and fresh primary fruits. Oh yeah. More of this please!

The nose are more open and rich om 18-20 degrees celsius.
A lovely bottle. A full bodied wine, with the depth and feel one whould aspect from a quality produser. Still I tryed to drink this uncolored of the fact that it is a Rousseau.

Surprisingly somewhat lighter bodied than the preceding Volnay 60 Ouvrées '02, but showed more elegance, finesse and length on the palate with delicious red fruit dominated by Griotte cherry, grilled meat touches, beginnings of forest floor, still lively acidity and a slightly saline backbone. I have 4 bottles left but will not hurry to drink them up. Excellent.

I know this is an infanticide but that bottle was amazing considering the accessibility of 2012 vintage. Such a light but shinny red body but a dense, precise and fragrant nose after 2 hours of decanting. Rose oil, hibiscus, lavender, perfectly ripe cherries, rhubarb, cinnamon, clove, pepper and star anis. The wine has a cylindric mouthfeel, coats every taste buds with a refreshing acidity and the length is infinite. One of the greatest wine I tasted. Paired perfectly well with a asian spices duck breast with cherry/cinnamon/star anise sauce and morels/figatelli gratin.

Superb nose, with that little something extra that Rousseau offers. Great depth on the palate, but tightening up a little. Overall very impressive, and well balanced.

Tasted blind. Dark red dense ruby color. Aging in the edges with slight brown color. Nose has ferns, forest floor, tons of fruit, a lovely sweetness and hints of marzipan. The palate is an adventure. The first thing that strikes me is the amount of fruit and flavour. These immense amounts of succulent and all-consuming and perfectly balanced fruits is something I have only ever encountered in 2005 burghs earlier. So I called this one '05. Bummer. I forgot about Rousseau's Chambertin. Tasted it once earlier in the '01-vintage, and in hindsight the similarities are obvious. Extreme power and concentration paired with immense elegance and length. No signs of any greenies here on the palate. Perhaps you could interpret the ferns on the nose as a sign of the greenies, but in this wine it was just another aspect of the complexity of the nose and in no way a bad thing. WOTN for me without a doubt.

Initially pretty shy on the nose, but after an hour or so this exhibited lovely brambly red fruit, modest spice and touch of earth on the nose. This carried through to the pure, clean, sweet and ripe fruit driven palate. There is excellent fruit here that is underpinned by a structure that is quite evident every third sip or so. Also a noticeable mineral/metallic note. Some floral and black fruit notes on the finish. This is lovely but up front and sweet and just lacked a certain completeness you expect that this level. That said, it's delicious.

Perfumed, elegant and ethereal. A very feminine expression of Gevrey. Fine and lacy in the mouth. A hint of flora and suggestion of earth. Plenty of mineral to the finish.

2011 Domaine Armand Rousseau Père et Fils Charmes-Chambertin

Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

7/13/2015 - HowardNZ Likes this wine: 92 points

Lunch at the Rôtisserie du Chambertin: A blend of two-thirds Mazoyeres and one-thirds Charmes fruit. A gorgeous, expressive Rousseau Charmes bouquet of confit of red fruits, especially plums and red currants, with a violet top note. On palate, closer to the 2013 than the 2014, not disgraced in ranking third of the three vintages I tried. Sappy, fleshy and concentrated with sufficient weight. Flavours of small red plums, confit of red and black berries, subtle spices and a chalk finish. Refined tannins. A comparatively earlier drinking Grand Cru but give this wine a minimum of five years. The Charmes worked well with my Rognon but really sang with the Abbaye de Citeaux cheese.

Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

7/13/2015 - HowardNZ Likes this wine: NR

Tasting at Domaine Armand Rousseau: New oak 80%. A prettier nose than the Clos de Bèze of meadow flowers, crème de cassis, kirsch, red currants, spices and minerals, with spicy oak not too prominent. To me, an even more detailed and complete wine than the Clos de Bèze. A comparatively sweet and very pure entry, then complex and nuanced flavours including red berry compote, dark soil, grilled bacon fat, and dried garrigue on the mid palate. Nice, refreshing acidity in the background. Very precise and focussed. From the mid palate on back, the wine shows its gravitas, as the power and structure really make their presence felt. Long finishing on limestone and granite. Outstanding! (95-97)

Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

7/13/2015 - HowardNZ Likes this wine: NR

Tasting at Domaine Armand Rousseau: New oak 80%. You sense the power and weight of the Clos de Bèze on bouquet. Earthy, with dry underbrush and some road tar. There is nothing pretty or floral about the wine at present. Spices, earth and (largely) red fruit on palate. Some toasty oak yet to integrate. Pretty locked down at this time. Today you can only admire the wine's huge power, concentration and structure, but not enjoy it. A very serious expression. Incredibly long. Ultra-fine grained but very grippy tannins at the end. Very impressive. 'A wine to cellar for 20 years' said Frédéric. (94-96)

Tasting at Domaine Armand Rousseau: New oak 70%. A profound, complex aroma with an interplay of spices, earth and berries. A sweet entry to the palate. A mélange of red and black berry flavours, with underbrush, earth and other nuances, very complex. Very intense. Huge drive, energy and power on the back palate. Very, very long, finishing on gravel and chalk. Still surprisingly accessible. 'Exciting' said Frédéric. I agreed, but with 10+ years under its belt I'm sure this will be a great wine. One of the WoTs. Excellent! (94-97)

Tasting at Domaine Armand Rousseau: New oak 20%. A bouquet of red fruit, earth and baking spices. An excellent, very complete wine. Very round in the mouth. Flavours of red and black fruit, dark soil and fried bacon fat. Transparent, very pure with real finesse and elegance but with grippy tannins on the back palate. Excellent matière and structure. Perhaps now shutting down? Lovely, sparkling acidity. Very long. (94-95)

7/13/2015 - HowardNZ Likes this wine: NR

Tasting at Domaine Armand Rousseau: New oak 10%. An expressive nose of small plums and kirsch, underpinned by warm clay, rust and cooked meat juices. Fairly closed and tight on palate. However, the wine has all of the structure, material and acidity, again showing the '13 signature acid profile, needed to be an excellent Clos de la Roche. Real, serious fruit weight. A flavour profile of red and black cherries, cooked game meats and a ton of soil. Great potential here. (93-94)

Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

7/13/2015 - HowardNZ Likes this wine: NR

Tasting at Domaine Armand Rousseau: A very different aromatic profile: dark fruits, tobacco leaf, black spices, smoky barbequed venison and savoury nuances. The wine was very closed on palate but with good flavour complexity including suggestions of dark soil, game meats, dark cherries and espresso. This wine clearly needs longer than the Charmes, at least 10-15 years, just to be at all approachable. I agreed with Frédéric that 'it is precise, but there is no pleasure today'. The huge scaled tannins that are so dominant now will, I'm sure, integrate with time to reveal an excellent wine. (92-94)

7/13/2015 - HowardNZ Likes this wine: NR

Tasting at Domaine Armand Rousseau: As with the '14 Charmes, aromatic fireworks! Lifted aromas of dark flowers, black raspberries and dark cherries. On palate, the flavours are more in the black fruit spectrum than for the '14 Charmes, with a little peaty soil and a suggestion of dark chocolate. The signature '13 Rousseau acid profile adds some freshness, energy and focus. 'Hold for 6-7 years minimum' said Frédéric. 93.

Tasting at Domaine Armand Rousseau: A very expressive nose of dark soil, black berries, dark cherries and coffee bean with a hint of violets. These aromas comes through the flavour profile on palate. The '13 acids are again prominent here. The Les Cazetiers has a long, mineral finish. A good example of the climat but I clearly preferred the '14. Cellar for 5+ years. (91-92)
