1.5L (Magnum)


The Rousseau family has a rich tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation since the establishment of their domain. The family's elders teach the younger ones the ways of the vine, maintaining a strong bond between man and vine and upholding their values and strong work ethic. The Rousseau family's profound respect for the terroir is firmly rooted in their family values, and they renew their heartfelt love of the vines with each new generation.

Eric Rousseau and his daughter Cyrielle manage the domain, which has grown over time to cover 15 hectares and 3 acres. They own 3 hectares of Village appellation, 3 hectares 77 of Premier Crus, and 8 hectares 52 of Grand Crus, located in Gevrey Chambertin and Morey-Saint-Denis.

One of the standout products of the Rousseau family is the Armand Rousseau Chambertin Grand Cru Magnum 1.5L 2019. This magnum bottle size holds the equivalent of two standard 750ml bottles of wine. The larger size provides a number of benefits, including slower aging due to less oxygen exposure through the cork, resulting in a more balanced and integrated wine with a longer shelf life. Additionally, magnums are an impressive centrepiece at any dinner table or gathering and make for an excellent gift for wine enthusiasts.

This too evidences subtle wood influence on the ripe yet cool nose that combines notes of spice, earth, and floral elements with those of dark berries and poached plum. There is excellent intensity to the full-bodied, concentrated and mineral-inflected flavours that coat the palate with sappy dry extract while delivering excellent depth and persistence on the beautifully balanced and imposingly powerful if decidedly compact finale. This strikingly pure effort is already Zen-like in its sense of harmony and should prove to be remarkably long-lived. Brilliant

Tasting Profile

The 2019 Chambertin Grand Cru is initially tightly wound on the nose, opening gradually to reveal blackberry, raspberry, orange pith, and rose petal scents; more sous-Bois character develops with time. The palate is very harmonious with a lightly spiced entry. A little oak remains to be subsumed, but there is fine depth on the finish, and veins of blood orange on the aftertaste. This feels like a Chambertin that is holding everything back and letting the Clos-de-Bèze steal the show. Once in bottle, we will find out if that was just part of its tactics. Neal Martin-Vinous
