About this Item

2008 - 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers
5 (5 x 1) 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

2008

‘Noticeable reduction renders the nose difficult to read but there are distinct animale aromas beneath the funk that can also be found on the robust and tautly muscular medium-bodied flavors that also display an overt minerality on the delicious, firm and complex finish.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 89-91/100 (Jan 2010)

2009

‘The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazétiers presents an attractive core of dark fruit, considerable aromatic complexity and plenty of structure to back things up. Fresh, vibrant notes are woven throughout, adding to an impression of reserved, tense coolness. The Cazétiers is one of the more inward wines at Rousseau in 2009. Drink window 2019 - 2029.’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, 91-93/100 (May 2011)

2010

‘Strong reduction flattens the nose but there is excellent verve to the rich, intense and solidly powerful middle weight flavors that display really lovely detail and nuance on the firmly structured and moderately austere finish. I very much like the interplay of the fruit against the structural elements and this should amply reward at least a decade of cellaring. Good juice and worth considering. Drink 2020+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 90-93/100 (Jan 2012)
