Domaine Armand Rousseau - Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2018

Overview

Terroir: Charmes-Chambertin is the largest Grand Cru in Gevrey-Chambertin covering 72 acres spread across many growers. Domaine Armand Rousseau owns a total of 3.4 acres in a prime position on the hill, mid-slope with an east/southeast exposure.

Additional Details edit

Beautifully aromatic. Pure, fresh, and bright cherry, plum, and red berry fruit aromas with a hint of herb and spice. On the palate, the flavors mirror the aromas, with vibrant cherry fruit and silky tannins. It is a very supple wine with a lot of finesse and elegance.

"The 2018 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has quite a mineral-driven bouquet, a little more austere than others I have tasted, but more terroir-expressive. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins, sweet and generous. There’s a lot of sucrosity on the finish, though offset by the acidity. Very seductive."
