Domaine Armand Rousseau


Attending Winemaker: Eric Rousseau

Domaine Armand Rousseau was created at the beginning of the 20th century by Armand Rousseau who, at the age of 18, inherited several plots of vineyards in Gevrey Chambertin. Armand Rousseau comes from a family of small landowners: vine growers, coopers and local wine merchants. As years went by, Armand Rousseau continued to enlarge his domaine with the purchase of more Grands Crus.  Charles Rousseau joined his father Armand in 1945 after studying law and oenology at the University of Dijon. In 1982, Charles was joined by his son Eric.  Eric now manages both the vineyards and the vinification and has turned the domaine into, without a doubt, one of the most hallowed domaines in Burgundy today.
