Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers 2018

Domaine Armand Rousseau

Terroir: Domaine Rousseau owns just over 2 acres of this small Premiere Cru that sits directly in front of the domaine and just outside of the walls of Clos St Jacques.

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.

Just ten cases of this wine are imported into the U.S. Please consult your local FWS rep for availability.

Additional Information

    "The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru has a very composed bouquet of darker fruit than the Lavaux Saint-Jacques; there are also hints of blood orange and tangerine here. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and superb acidity. Quite saline in the mouth, displaying real complexity and nuance toward the finish. Superb."
    Grade: 93-95 points
