August 13, 2014 - Been able to sponge one glass of this magnificant village. Still really young and plenty of prospect. Pure cristal clear Rousseau sublime elegance. A whole bottle would have been better :-).
Hold it for a couple of years and you will get rewarded. I will do so ;-)
May 31, 2014 - Outstanding village wine that is still so youthful but beginning to drink really well. You get some aniseed, sarsaparilla, black cherry and sweet meats on the nose. It is pretty and perfumed yet has plenty of presence and material on which to age. It has great balance and poise and is extremely long.

February 16, 2014 - Lovely, expressive nose. Red fruits - cherries and strawberries. But there is also a dark, earthy, iron component. The palate is intense and is carried by finely balanced acids and tannins. It's got the precise, 'correct', Rousseau stamp of approval. Not a thing out of place. And so much life ahead of it still.1 person found this helpful Comments (5)

February 2, 2014 - This is really terrific right now, and yet can hold for some time. It is a dark, fruit monster, I am excited to try more from this producer.

(Domaine Armand Rousseau Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin) Sappy, strawberry palate, with very good acidity; medium finish
By Bill Nanson
(Rousseau Armand Gevrey-Chambertin) The nose is a little animale. In the mouth it’s soft and ripe with impressively fine tannin. Clearly an executive villages. Impressive, but could it have been a little fresher?
