Domaine Armand Rousseau Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2014
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
This great domaine was founded at the beginning of the 20th century by Armand Rousseau, with some vineyards he inherited in the village of Gevrey Chambertin. His marriage union in 1909 brought more vineyards as well as a winery and cellars dating back to the 13th century. The acquisition of Grand Cru plots in the 1940's and 50's really put the domaine on the map, and today Armand Rousseau wines are among the most sought after in all of Burgundy. The wines are impeccably made with the guidance of nature by Eric Rousseau, Armand's grandson, and the domaine is managed by Armand's granddaughter, Corinne.
The Grand Cru vineyard of Clos de la Roche sits at the northern boundary of the village of Morey-Saint-Denis and directly borders the Grand Crus of Gevrey-Chambertin. Domaine Armand Rousseau owns a little more than 3.5 acres of the 33 total acres under vine. Though just a stones throw from Chambertin this Grand Cru sits with a more southern exposure and mineral laden soil, producing wines of great concentration and purity, typically maturing sooner than it's neighbors to the north. Rousseau's Clos de la Roche is from a 1.48 ha holding, 1 ha of which is in Les Fremières and the rest in Clos de la Roche proper; 10% new wood.
