2011 will surely be a winemaker's vintage, producing softer, elegant wines marked by great balance between sugar and acidity and ripe aromatics. This Rousseau monopole of just over 3 acres sits perched just above Mazy-Chambertin and is the most northern of Burgundies Grand Crus. 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.

BurghoundAn adroit application of wood frames cool, pure and restrained dark berry fruit, truffle and spice aromas. There is good richness and volume to the intensely mineral-driven flavors that terminate in a beautifully complex, lengthy and impeccably well-balanced finish. This is very classy and should be excellent in due course.
