Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Grand Cru 2014

Reviews
"Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Grand Cru 2014 is powerful and lush, with cherry, rose and vegetal elements that are quickly encased in serious tannins, this is monolithic today and just hinting at its full potential, with a finish that keeps coming in waves. Best from 2023 through 2045."
98 Points - Wine Spectator

"Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, Rousseau's 2014 Chambertin Grand Cru has a fruit-driven bouquet laden with black cherries, crushed strawberry, ink and a touch of bay leaf. As it aerates, the fruit seems to take more of a back seat and the terroir comes through. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very pure and elegant, iron fist/velvety glove and so forth. This is what a grand cru should be. Utterly seductive and captivating, its satin texture might lure you into opening a bottle too soon. Give it a decade to admire Rousseau at full flight."
98 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"There is enough wood to notice framing the exuberantly spicy red and dark currant aromas that display an abundance of sauvage and earth nuances. The cool and pure medium weight plus flavors are remarkably refined for a young Chambertin yet there is clearly plenty of power lurking beneath the refined veneer. This is a big but not massive vintage for the Rousseau Cham and I like the sense of proportion and particularly so on the harmonious, superbly long and seamlessly well-balanced finale. As is the case with the 2015 vintage, it's going to be very interesting to see which of these two is the better wine in 15 to 20 years."

Long ago, a man named Bertin decided to cultivate the same vines in his field as those of the Bèze monks. His wine was so exceptional that his vineyard came to be known solely in reference to him: 'Bertin's field', or, in French, 'Champ de Bertin', which over the years has become known as 'Chambertin'.

The grapes for this Chambertin Grand Cru come from three vineyards in the east-facing Chambertin appellation, and from a fourth vineyard, 'Larrey', a north-south parcel at the edge of the woods. The layout of this vineyard is such that it can only be cultivated using a horse and plough.

The soil has a very high limestone content. At the top of the Clos it lies on Bathonien calcerous clay and halfway down on crinodial limestone and marl from the Bajocian age. The stones are spread out unevenly.

Chambertin is the wine of kings. Powerful, virile, concentrated with good structure. A wonderfully persistent mouthfeel with aromas of chocolate, liquorice and small red fruits. Exceptional vintage with cellaring potential of 25 to 35 years.
