Armand Rousseau inherited many Gevrey-Chambertin parcels in the early 20th century being that his family had been winegrowers, wine merchants and coopers. He then expanded the vineyard shortly after his marriage and built up the Domaine where it currently still stands, right below the XIII century church. His growth did not stop there, he later acquired some parcels in some of the most prestigious Burgundy appellations such as Charmes-Chambertin, Clos de la Roche, Chambertin, followed by Mazy-Chambertin, and Mazoyères-Chambertin.
Today, the Domaine’s wines are 100% Pinot Noir grown on both Grand and Premier Cru vineyards, which is in large part responsible for the Domaine’s success. Armand Rousseau only produces around 65,000 bottles per vintage and exports 90% of its production to over 30 countries worldwide.
