Winemaker Notes

Chambertin is the wine of Kings. He is masculine, powerful and well built. Vigorous and firm, well structured and very dense. With great persistence in the mouth. Aromas of chocolate, licorice and red berries.

Critical Acclaim

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Chambertin Grand Cru wafts from the glass with a complex bouquet of red berries, plums, rose petals and orange rind, framed by bass notes of rich, loamy soil and carnal nuances of smoked meats. Full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, it's layered and concentrated, its expansive attack segueing into a richly structured but impressively vibrant mid-palate, concluding with a long, resonant finish. This is a brilliant wine that readers should plan on forgetting for at least a decade.

There is barely enough wood to mention on the wonderfully fresh and airy aromas of red cherry, pomegranate, earth and a hint of the sauvage. The seductively textured yet well-delineated big-bodied flavors possess an abundance of energy on the intensely mineral-inflected, sappy and impeccably well-balanced finale that reflects a touch of youthful austerity. The sheer level of complexity is stunning, and this knockout of a Chambertin should age for a very, very long time yet it's not so backward and it couldn't be approached after a decade or so of aging.
JM 97
Jasper Morris

A solid, evenly distributed crimson purple. This is a substantial rendition of Chambertin, a little less ethereal than some at this early stage, but evidently with a weight of flavour to follow. The nose builds further. I am looking forward to tasting this. It is indeed sensual, mouthfilling, with lifted spice, just a little touch of wood, a warmer but still balanced finish – overall very well done.

Decanter
Domaine Rousseau's holdings in this most prestigious of Gevrey-Chambertin Grands Crus are made up of four parcels covering 2.5ha. The good news is that there are 40 barrels of this sought-after wine in 2018, all of them new because 'it needs them to develop', according to Cyrielle Rousseau. It's a refined, even patrician wine showing subtle cinnamon spice, racy acidity and layers of raspberry and wild strawberry fruit. Denser and more powerful than it appears, this will age well in bottle.

Domaine Armand Rousseau ranks with Romanée-Conti, Leflaive, Jacques Prieur, and a small handful of names that are the stuff of Burgundy legend. These domaines produce impeccable quality wines from vintage to vintage, and consistently place Burgundy at the top of the wine world.

Each of the domaine’s prestigious holdings is in Gevrey Chambertin, with the exception of Grand Cru Clos de la Roche in Morey-St. Denis. The domaine controls a remarkable 8 hectares of Grand Crus, including 6.25 acres in Chambertin and 3.45 in Clos de Bèze. Rousseau owns 5.5 acres in the famed Premier Cru Clos St. Jacques, which accounts for 40% of the total acreage and 100% of the 2.5-acre monopole, Grand Cru Clos des Ruchottes.

In August 2012, following the purchase of Chateau de Gevrey-Chambertin’s vineyards by its new Chinese owner, Louis Ng Chi-sing, chief operating officer at SJM Holdings in Macau, its management was entrusted to Eric Rousseau of Domaine Rousseau. The five-acre property, which includes the Chateau, is comprised of small plots of the grand cru and premier cru ‘Chambertin’ vineyards, while the balance is Gevrey-Chambertin AOC.

Eric Rousseau is adamant that yields should be severely limited to promote faithful expression of the individual vineyard. The wines age in barrel for 18 months before bottling. Rousseau releases its wines exactly two years after the vintage.
