“You can’t buy happiness but you can buy wine, and that’s kind of the same thing.” – Anonymous

And Burgundy is one of the wines that really makes me happy.  I was ecstatic when we came across this collection of Armand Rousseau and what could top a ten year vertical of Domaine de la Romanee Conti  La Tache back to 1978 (Last Year’s B-Day Tasting)?   Ten vintages of Armand Rousseau Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Beze back to 1985!

The Far East has recognized the collectible nature of Burgundy and that although the top producers of Burgundy may produce a few dozen different wines, they only make a few hundred cases of these wines each year and they are much harder in the aftermarket.  Unlike the great wines of Bordeaux who get sold over and over again before they are consumed Burgundy lovers don’t usually sell their most prized possessions they hang on to them until they die planning to drink each precious bottle. 

We received a few bottles of the 1985 Domaine Armand Rousseau Pere et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru a few years back and sold 3 of the 4 at $3500/btl.  I kept one bottle hoping to find a few more to create an experience with multiple vintages of wines from this producer.  The 1985 vintage is now selling for upwards of $10,000 per bottle!  Any smart wine merchant would probably sell the wine and take the money but I’m more interested in tasting this wine, especially after having the 1990 last year- it was AMAZING !!   We recently acquired a cellar with a nice collection of wines from the Domaine so now that we have the other pieces to the puzzle we can offer Burgundy lovers this « Once in a Lifetime » Burgundy experience.

If you are a serious Burgundy lover you want to take a look at this offering it is an amazing collection of Armand Rousseau and this tasting is a “Once In a Lifetime” event!  The fee for this tasting which includes dinner is $3950 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com.  Please let us know when you make your reservations if you have any dietary restrictions and chef Toni will be happy to accommodate you.

A bit about Domaine Armand Rousseau:

Domaine Armand Rousseau ranks with Romanée-Conti, Leflaive, Jacques Prieur, and a small handful of names that are the stuff of Burgundy legend. These domaines produce impeccable quality wines from vintage to vintage, and consistently place Burgundy at the top of the wine world.

Each of the domaine’s prestigious holdings are in Gevrey Chambertin, with the exception of Grand Cru Clos de la Roche in Morey-St. Denis. The domaine controls a remarkable 8 hectares of Grand Crus, including 6.25 acres in Chambertin and 3.45 in Clos de Bèze. Rousseau owns 5.5 acres in the famed Premier Cru Clos St. Jacques, which accounts for 40% of the total acreage, and 100% of the 2.5-acre monopole, Grand Cru Clos des Ruchottes.

In August 2012, following the purchase of Château de Gevrey-Chambertin’s vineyards by its new Chinese owner, Louis Ng Chi-sing, chief operating officer at SJM Holdings in Macau, its management was entrusted to Eric Rousseau of Domaine Rousseau. The five-acre property, which includes the Château, is comprised of small plots of the grand cru and premier cru ‘Chambertin’ vineyards, while the balance is Gevrey-Chambertin AOC.

Eric Rousseau is adamant that yields should be severely limited to promote faithful expression of the individual vineyard. The wines age in barrel for 18 months before bottling. Rousseau releases its wines exactly two years after the vintage.
