2017 Domaine Armand Rousseau Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru

SKU #1500740 93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a very precise and focused bouquet, almost the epitome of transparency and utterly encapsulating. There is real mineralité here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very tensile from the start with tart red cherries, Japanese yuzu and orange zest that fans out beautifully on the finish. This is a Charmes-Chambertin with a skip in its step. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Light, pale and charming, this is always the most approachable and forward of the Rousseau grand cru bottlings, almost ready to drink from barrel. It's sweet and appealing, with supple summer pudding flavours, a hint of cola and supple tannins. Drinking Window 2023 - 2027. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin from Domaine Armand Rousseau is another great vintage for this bottling, which has hit some superb high water marks in recent times, with 2005, 2010, 2014 and now 2017 a significant step up from what this bottling was capable of back in the decades of the 1980s or 1990s. The 2017 offers up a deep and nicely black fruity bouquet of black cherries, black plums, dark soil tones, raw cocoa, grilled meats, woodsmoke and a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite powerful in personality this year, with a sappy core of dark fruit, ripe, seamless tannins, excellent focus and grip and (Drink between 2029-2075) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This too reflects just enough wood to mention as it serves as a relatively neutral backdrop for the restrained and pure essence of red pinot fruit, earth and discreet spice whiffs. The backward if supple medium-bodied flavors possess a beguiling sense of underlying tension that carries over to the detail but very firm, serious and youthfully austere finish that delivers sneaky good length. Of all the Rousseau wines, the Charmes has made the most progress over the last 5 years as it's finally beginning to consistently achieve grand cru quality. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

92-95pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Medium deep purple, a little touch of reduction which apparently has just come in with the cold weather, lovely density of fruit nonetheless, seamless, more in a dark raspberry frame, sweetly ripe at the back. Tasted: November 2018."
