In the illustrious lineage of Armand Rousseau's winemaking legacy, the 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru emerges as a testament to their craftsmanship. Radiant in the glass, it presents a captivating hue that hints at the depth within. The nose is greeted by an enticing bouquet, where red berries, plums, and peonies intertwine with delicate hints of cedar, raw cocoa, and mandarin orange. On the palate, it reveals itself as medium to full-bodied, its supple texture enveloping the senses with softness and charm. The tannins, like a gentle caress, melt away, unveiling an ample core of fruit that delights the palate. Generous and expressive, this vintage has evolved gracefully in the bottle, acquiring a touch of richness and depth. The purity of its brambly red fruit bouquet is matched by a medium-bodied palate, characterized by sappy red fruit, fine structure, and well-judged acidity. While initially reticent on the finish, it gradually unfurls with time, leaving a lasting impression that hints at its potential for further evolution.

Robert Parker - 93 Points

"Rousseau's 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is showing nicely, wafting from the glass with inviting aromas of red berries, plums and peonies mingled with hints of cedar, raw cocoa and mandarin orange. Medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping, it's soft and charming, with melting tannins and an ample core of fruit. Generous and demonstrative, like many 2017s it has picked up a bit of richness and depth in bottle."

Antonio Galloni - 93 Points

"The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a beautifully defined bouquet of extremely pure brambly red fruit, and the oak is very well integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine structure and well-judged acidity. Though this is initially backward on the finish, it opens nicely in the glass. Whether it is long-term is another matter. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting."
