From the hallowed slopes of Gevrey-Chambertin, where Burgundy's legend unfolds, emerges this Grand Cru Pinot Noir. Born from whispers of ancient vines and meticulous craftsmanship, this wine invites you to a symphony of flavour and terroir.

Rooted in Legacy:

Domaine Armand Rousseau, an icon of Burgundy, has nurtured Grand Cru vines for generations. With deep respect for heritage and relentless pursuit of excellence, the Rousseau family cultivates precious parcels in Gevrey-Chambertin, including the celebrated Charmes-Chambertin and part of the coveted Clos Saint-Jacques.

Charmes Unraveled:

"The Charmes-Chambertin comprises grapes from two parcels of Charmes-Chambertin appellation and a parcel of Mazoyères-Chambertin. In Burgundy, the word 'Charmes' refers to the ancient communal fields which became abandoned and overgrown. Here, 'Charmes' means 'Straw' or 'Stubble-field'. Mazoyères got its name from the small sheds built by the vignerons to store their tools. The Mazoyères-Chambertin parcel is of Comblanchien limestone, with a layer of fine gravel originating from the Combe Grisard. The soil of the Charmes Chambertin vineyard is composed of crinoid limestone on the upper slopes and Comblanchien limestone further down."

A Dance of Nuances:

Gentle extraction and patient oak aging unveil the wine's soul. A vibrant ruby robe unfolds to aromas of ripe red fruit, mingled with notes of spice, earth, and a hint of floral elegance. On the palate, a symphony of velvet tannins embraces a core of pure Pinot Noir intensity. Flavours of cherry, plum, and raspberry cascade over the tongue, interwoven with earthy nuances and a lingering, mineral finish.
