Terroir: Lavaux St Jacques sits directly adjacent to the Clos St Jacques vineyard. Domaine Armand Rousseau owns 3 acres of this Premiere Cru vineyard which sits in relatively flat terrain with exposure slightly to the southeast. Vines average 50 years old.
Vinification: Grapes are meticulously sorted as they arrive in the winery. Following a cool maceration lasting 5-7 days the must travels by gravity into barrel where it will stay for the entire vinification process lasting typically 18-24 months. Each Armand Rousseau wine is blended unfiltered.
Aromas of red berries dominated by luscious cherries. Elegance, freshness and minerality are the main characteristics of this excellent Premier Cru.
