Wine Maker

Eric Rousseau

"Eric Rousseau manages to combine a subtle blend of elegance, nobility, density, and also silky and tenderly spicy notes making the wines of the domain uniquely recognisable."

Soil Specificity

The soils in Côte de Nuits result on the consequences of the uplift of the Alps and the collapse of the plain of the Saône. The vines are mainly planted on limestone slopes. At the summit sits the famous "stone of premeaux", giving Romanée-Conti, Richeboug, and La Tâche outstanding wines. The soils are formed of calcareous scree, limestone, and red silt with a large diversity of terroir contributing to the typicality of the Côte de Nuits wines.

History / Ethos

Domaine Armand Rousseau was created in 1902 with only few small plots of land. Headed up by Eric, Armand's grandson, the family domaine expanded by purchasing some of the best sites around the city of Gevrey-Chambertin. The Rousseau's wines are the antithesis of modern, dark-coloured, extracted styles - here paler colours hide wines of extraordinary class and tremendous intensity. This family domaine enjoys the reputation of being one of the most distinguished estates in the Côte d'Or.
