Armand Rousseau's 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru captivates the senses with its resplendent crimson hue, an invitation to explore its depths. Aromas of sweet red berry fruit, delicately smoked meats, and the enchanting perfume of mandarin orange and peonies dance gracefully from the glass, intertwined with hints of coniferous forest floor and a subtle embrace of cedary, spicy new oak. On the palate, this wine unveils its full-bodied splendor, offering a sumptuous and velvety texture that enwraps the senses. Its initial caress evolves seamlessly into an expansive core of succulent fruit, imparting a sense of richness and opulence that lingers long into the finish. Deceptively approachable in its youth yet endowed with the promise of longevity, the 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru is a glorious triumph. With vivid red fruit, luscious Morello cherries, and the delicate essence of wild strawberry and pressed violets, its aromatics are animated and exquisitely defined. Balanced with precision, the palate reveals a harmonious interplay of crystalline red fruit, fine-grained tannins, and a refreshing acidity that elevates each sip to unparalleled heights. Armand Rousseau's 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru is a masterpiece of finesse and sophistication, destined to enchant discerning palates for years to come.

Robert Parker - 96 Points

"Revisited from bottle, the 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru is showing beautifully, soaring from the glass with expressive aromas of sweet red berry fruit, smoked meats, coniferous forest floor, mandarin orange and peonies, framed by a deft application of cedary, spicy new oak. Full-bodied, sumptuous and enveloping, its velvety attack segues into an ample core of succulent fruit, concluding with a long and resonant finish. This is likely to be both deceptively approachable young and notably long-lived, offering a broad drinking window."

Antonio Galloni - 98 Points

"The 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru is just a glorious success. Vivid red fruit, Morello cherries, wild strawberry and pressed violets on the nose, the aromatics here feel so animated and exquisitely defined. The palate is perfectly balanced with a killer line of acidity: crystalline red fruit, filigree tannins and more freshness than it knows what to do with. There is a sense of "channeled intensity" in this Chambertin and whilst there is no question that it is a 20- to 30-years wine, I felt no guilt in polishing this off in its youth. Tasted at Maison de Colombier in Beaune."
