Domaine Armand Rousseau*
One of the most respected estates in Burgundy, Domaine Armand Rousseau farms 14.9 hectares of 100% Pinot Noir across ten climats in the Côtes de Nuits. Producing from the communes of Gevrey-Chambertin and Morey-St-Denis, the domaine began in the early 20th Century with the most recent addition to their land-holdings occurring in 1956 (adding Chambertin). Founder Armand Rousseau was one of the first in Burgundy to domaine bottle and sell wines directly to consumers as opposed to selling through négociants.
Keeping to tradition, this family-owned and operated domaine is now in its third generation. After Armand's untimely death in 1959, his son Charles Rousseau took over and helped establish an extensive export market. Charles' son Eric now heads viticulture and vinification, while his sister Brigitte looks after the commercial side of the operation. Domaine Armand Rousseau wines are highly sought-after by collectors and are immediately snatched up if and when they appear on the market.
