Producer's description

Domaine Armand Rousseau was founded at the beginning of the 20th century by Armand Rousseau, who inherited several vineyard plots in Gevrey-Chambertin. Armand Rousseau comes from a family of landowners who were also involved in growing grapes and selling wine. His marriage in 1909 allowed him to expand the vineyards, at the same time he acquired plots of land with buildings including a dwelling house, cellars and winery, which were located in the oldest part of the village, near the 13th century church.
After first selling his own wine to local wholesalers, he began to acquire new vineyards in Charmes Chambertin in 1919, Clos de la Roche and Chambertin in 1920 and 1921. Armand then decided to start bottling his most prestigious wines himself and selling them directly to customers, in mainly restaurants and connoisseurs, on the wise advice of Raymond Baudouet, a good friend and founder of the famous magazine “Revue des Vins de France”. Over the years, Armand Rousseau continues to expand his Domaine, acquiring more Grand Cru sites, classified in 1935 when the “State Committee of Appellations of Origin” was created. The vineyards of Mazie Chambertin were purchased in 1937, Chambertin in 1943 and 1956. In 1954, Armand's son, Charles, bought a vineyard in Clos Saint-Jacques. Charles joined his father after graduating from university, where he studied oenology.

In 1959, after the death of Armand Rousseau, Charles Rousseau took charge of the 6-hectare Domaine, which he continued to expand thanks to his great knowledge of oenology and the acquisition of new vineyards, mainly Grand Cru. Fluent in English and German, Charles decides to focus on exports, after the USA, where his father had already begun selling his wines immediately after the repeal of Prohibition in the 1930s. Charles begins to develop exports, first to the UK, Germany, Switzerland, and soon to all European countries, then to Canada, New Zealand and finally to Asia in the 1970s. In 1982, Charles was joined by his son, Eric, who also studied oenology at the university in Dijon. Eric focused most of his attention on working in the vineyards and the vinification process, based on traditional winemaking principles.
From 1993 to 2005 Corinne, Charles's eldest daughter, returned to the Domaine after many years of professional experience in export abroad and in France, receiving a diploma in oenology in 2005. She, in turn, takes upon herself the solution of commercial issues. Now Eric is at the head of the Domain. Since 2006, Bridget, Charles's youngest daughter, has been helping him.

Currently, the vineyards of Domaine Armand Rousseau cover an area of more than 14 hectares, of which 2.21 hectares are Village Appellation, 3.47 hectares Premier Cru and 8.41 hectares Grand Cru, located in the communes of Gevrey-Chambertin and Maury-Saint- Denis. Domain produces about 65,000 bottles per year, 80% of the production is exported to more than 30 countries.
