Description

From the moment the domain was established, the family developed an enduring ritual: the elders teach the ways of the vine to the next generation. Thus, they maintain the strong bond between man and vine, upholding the family values and strong work ethic through the years. In the Rousseau family, the heartfelt love of the vines is renewed with each generation; a profound respect for the terroir is anchored in the family values. Enter their world.

The domain is managed by Eric Rousseau, with the help of his daughter Cyrielle. It has expanded over the years and today covers 15 hectares and 3 ares. They own 3 hectares of Village appellation, 3 hectares 77 of Premier Crus and 8 hectares 52 of Grand Crus, situated in Gevrey Chambertin and Morey-Saint-Denis

Review

A discreet application of wood can be found on the very, very fresh nose of various red berries and earth nuances. The lilting, refined and delicious lighter-weight flavours conclude in a saline-inflected, refreshing and lightly structured finale. This should drink well young.

Tasting Profile

Palate
Clear ruby red in colour. Expressive nose of fresh red fruits with a hint of wood and forest floor. The palate is sweet and tangy with crunchy red fruits, wild strawberries, spice, nutmeg, bramble, and a hint of European oak. An extremely satisfying wine.
