Domaine Armand Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin 2016
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Nuits|
|Brand||Domaine Armand Rousseau|
Offering a mix of savory and fruity aromas, this red reveals sandalwood, cedar, strawberry and cherry notes. Elegant and detailed, this remains vibrant and harmonious through the lingering finish. Drink now through 2033. 67 cases imported.
The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Villages, which was not touched by the frost, has a perfumed nose, the fruit here a shade darker than the Clos du Château, quite focused with a hint leafiness. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin and well-judged acidity, an elegant and finessed village cru with a pretty, pointed finish. This is one of the best village crus that I have encountered from Rousseau in recent years.
