1999 Domaine Armand Rousseau Pere et Fils Chambertin Burgundy

Domaine Armand Rousseau is one of Burgundy's oldest and most revered family-run domains. They hold many grand cru plots in Gevrey-Chambertin as well as part of the much sought-after premier cru vineyard Clos Saint-Jacques.

Founded at the start of the 20th Century by Gevrey native Armand Rousseau, the domaine initially owned small plots of vines throughout Gevrey-Chambertin. Over the next 100 years under both Armand Rousseau and his son Charles, who took over after the death of his father in 1959, the Domaine acquired various grand cru vineyards in Charmes-, Mazis- and Mazoyères-Chambertin, culminating in a plot in Le Chambertin itself in 1994.

Rating 1999 Domaine Armand Rousseau Pere et Fils Chambertin Burgundy Produced from 45-year-old vines, the 1999 Chambertin is medium to dark ruby-colored. It has super-ripe, talcum, and blackberry aromas that lead to a medium to full-bodied wine of outstanding depth. Loads of oak-laced black fruits can be found throughout its zesty, firm character.

Burghound 97 BH - (opened from personal storage and thanks to Andy Goodman). A fantastically complex and still agreeably fresh nose offers up impressively dense and concentrated aromas of mostly black fruit that are blended with an incredible array of spice elements plus discreet hints of earth and game. There is serious size and weight to the imposingly-scaled, rich, intense and mouth-coating flavors that possess outstanding depth, power and stunning length. This is not a particularly structured wine but the sheer complexity and class combine to create a knock out Chambertin, worthy of every accolade reserved for the very best in Burgundy. This is really lovely stuff fashioned in a relatively forward style though one that should be capable of aging for years. Tasted on multiple occasions, including twice in 2016, with consistent notes.
