Tasting notes for the Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru "Clos des Ruchottes" 2000 - Armand Rousseau

  • EYE: The intense ruby color of this vintage captures the eye, revealing a well-balanced maturation. Subtle garnet nuances add visual sophistication. The crystalline clarity indicates a meticulous winemaking process.
  • NOSE: The complex bouquet of this Burgundy wine exudes aromas of black cherries and blackberries, complemented by more discreet but well-present floral notes. Background hints of licorice and undergrowth bring a pleasant depth.
  • MOUTH: Silky tannins offer a pleasing texture, with preserved acidity for persistent freshness. Concentrated flavors of black fruits are accompanied by delicate notes of cocoa and spices.

 

In short: The Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru "Clos des Ruchottes" 2000 from Domaine Armand Rousseau provides a balanced experience. Its aging potential remains significant, estimated at 15-20 years. Pair it with dishes such as duck breast with cherries, veal roast with morel mushrooms, truffle risotto, grilled lamb chops, or a selection of aged cheeses.

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.
