Family estate in Gevrey-Chambertin


In 1902, young Armand, 18 years-old at the time, inherited his first parcels of Gevrey-Chambertin, in the Côte de Nuits. Coming from a long line of wine makers and wine sellers from Burgundy, Armand Rousseau decided to follow the family traditions and developed his newly acquired grape vines. Things accelerated after his marriage in 1909, when he ended up with a bigger vineyard, as well as an entire estate which now bore his name.

Flash-forward to the 1930s. The Domaine Armand Rousseau was now selling its own wines, thanks to the input of Raymond Baudoin (the founder of the famous French magazine "Revue du Vin de France"). Armand was now producing as well as selling other appellations: Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Clos de la Roche, or Clos Saint-Jacques. He even started exporting to the USA, which just came out of 13 years of Prohibition.

In 1959, Charles Rousseau (Armand's son) inherited the estate when his father died. He had previously worked with him for 15 years and was now at the helm of the 6 hectares vineyard. Charles decided to make it grow it by adding more parcels like Clos de Bèze and Clos des Ruchottes. He aimed for the outside world and decided to export his wines in Europe and the rest of the planet, especially Asia since the 1970s.

Charles enjoyed the assistance of his son Éric, who began helping his dad in 1982, after he finished his oenology studies at the University of Dijon. Thanks to him, the Domaine Armand Rousseau had discovered organic winemaking. No more pesticides, mechanical plowing, high interventionism... This respect for nature and family traditions, Éric is now teaching it to his daughter Cyrielle. The new generation of Rousseau.
