Gevrey-Chambertin AC 2014

Domaine Armand Rousseau

Terroir: Domaine Armand Rousseau produces this village level wine from 6 acres of vines located throughout the appellation.

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.

Additional Information

An exquisitely focused wine, with savory, bright cherry fruit on the nose and mouth. Perfectly structured and balanced.

    A broad red, offering cherry and woodsy flavors and accents of spice and stone. Juicy and solid, with a long, spice- and cherry-laced finish. Best from 2020 through 2033.

    "Good bright red. Sexy, very ripe Gevrey-typical aromas of dark cherry, spices and game show an almost candied quality. Boasts lovely silky texture for this village wine, with red fruit and spice flavors leading to a ripely tannic if slightly edgy finish. This should be a relatively easygoing wine with early appeal."
    Grade: 87-89 points
