About this Item

Ruchottes-Chambertin Clos de Ruchottes, 1989
4 (1 x 4) 750ml
The family-run Domaine Armand Rousseau is one of Burgundy's oldest and most revered domaines. They own many Grand Cru plots in Gevrey-Chambertin as well as part of the highly sought-after Premier Cru Clos Saint-Jacques vineyard. Established in the early 20th Century by Armand Rousseau, the domaine initially owned small parcels throughout Gevrey-Chambertin. Over the next century, under both Armand Rousseau and his son Charles, who took over the reins 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. Careful winemaking, which allows for terroir-expression, the sparing use of oak and old vines, all make for elegant and pure wines that are built for long ageing.

Critics Ratings

‘A subtle hint of crushed herb is slightly out of place on the otherwise ripe and fully mature truffle and sous-bois-infused nose that leads to rich, full, sweet and intense middle weight flavors brimming with obvious minerality and outstanding length. Despite the nose being mature the structure could still use a few years to completely round out and overall, this is a fine if not outstanding vintage by the usual standards achieved by the Clos des Ruchottes.’ - Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 91/100 (Nov 2006)
