Domaine Armand Rousseau stands as a venerable icon in the annals of Burgundy's winemaking legacy, tracing its roots back to the dawn of the 20th century when Gevrey native Armand Rousseau laid its cornerstone. Initially tending to modest plots scattered throughout Gevrey-Chambertin, the domaine's trajectory soared under the stewardship of Armand's successor, his son Charles, who assumed leadership following his father's passing in 1959.

Over the ensuing century, a saga of acquisition unfolded, as Domaine Armand Rousseau secured coveted parcels across the prestigious landscape of Gevrey-Chambertin. From the revered grand cru vineyards of Charmes, Mazis, and Mazoyères-Chambertin to the crowning achievement of Le Chambertin itself in 1994, each acquisition marked a milestone in the domaine's storied journey.

True to their Burgundian heritage, the wines of Domaine Armand Rousseau embody an ethos of timelessness and finesse. Crafted from old vines and nurtured with meticulous care, these wines epitomize the essence of terroir-driven expression. Delicate yet profound, they unfold on the palate with a symphony of red and black fruit aromas, underscored by a judicious touch of oak. In every bottle, a testament to the enduring pursuit of excellence that defines the Rousseau legacy.

The domain owns two parcels within the Clos de Bèze; the larger one is in the upper part of the appellation. Here the soil is stony and has a high limestone content. At the top of the Clos there is a predominance of Bathonien calcerous clay; half-way down this turns to crinodial limestone and marl from the Bajocian age. The stones are spread out unevenly.
