Domaine Armand Rousseau Pere et Fils Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2013  - First Bottle

Reviews

92-94 Vinous -
An explosive, exuberant bouquet makes a strong first impression in the 2013 Charmes-Chambertin. Those signatures follow onto the palate, where the Charmes is quite opulent. Dark cherries, plums, spices and new leather blossom in a decidedly racy, supple Charmes that should drink well with minimal cellaring.
93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a well defined and quite earthy bouquet, plenty of sous-bois character here, gently unfolding in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit, fine tannins and a harmonious, caressing finish that demonstrates assiduous use of new oak. Everything just seems to effortless in this delightful Charmes-Chambertin from Armand Rousseau. Tasted September 2016.
91-93 Burghound -
This has that interesting just turned earth, forest floor and humus character that some Gevrey-based wines display that adds plenty of breadth to the very fresh red currant and dark berry suffused nose. There is fine richness and volume to the delicious, intense and muscular broad-shouldered flavors that possess very fine depth on the balanced and lingering finish where the supporting tannins are dense but fine. This is better than it usually is and this is one of the wines in the Rousseau stable that has shown marked improvement over the last few vintages.
