How often do you get the opportunity to purchase a Perfect 100-Point Wine from Burgundy?
Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin is one of Burgundy's most desirable wines.
The unique label sets the mood for something very special in the bottle. This is Gevrey-Chambertin at its most majestic and few would question that Rousseau makes the most sublime example.
Rousseau's Chambertin holding were acquired between 1920 and 1994 by Armand and Charles Rousseau and today they are the largest owners of this prime vineyard.
Charles Rousseau Sadly, Charles, a true gentleman, passed away in May this year. It was during his tenure that Domaine Rousseau rose to become one of the most desirable Burgundy addresses. Today, international demand is as large as it has ever been.
The 2012 vintage of Rousseau Chambertin has been scored a Perfect 100-Points by Tim Atkin MW.

Tim Atkin MW: 
What does perfection taste like? I've sampled this wine twice - once in Gevrey and once in London - and I have no hesitation in saying that this is it. There's 100% new oak here, but the wine has digested it, like an lion swallowing an antelope. Silky, fine and effortlessly structured, it's the kind of wine that makes Burgundy lovers dewy eyed. Still a little closed at this stage, but this has everything in place for a long life: concentration, fruit, vanilla oak and structure. 2020-35. 100 Points
