Armand Rousseau

At the beginning of the 20th century, Armand Rousseau inherited the family vineyard land and in 1909, thanks to his marriage, his estate expanded. In the beginning Armand Rousseau only sold his bottles through wine merchants. Later, as he acquired more and more prestigious plots around his land, he decided to change his commercial tactics and set up a more selective marketing of his wines; to private individuals for direct sale and to restaurateurs. From 1935 onwards, the land that Armand Rousseau continued to buy back was classified as AOC, which allowed him to gain even more visibility. In 1959, on Armand Rousseau’s death, his son, Charles Rousseau, took over. The latter then owned 6 hectares which he continued to develop. But Charles Rousseau, thanks to his many experiences in the vineyards, decided to implement new winemaking techniques more respectful of nature and decided to get closer to the organic world. In 1982 Eric Rousseau, Charles Rousseau’s son, joined the company in his turn. With the advantage of mastering several foreign languages, Eric decided to add his signature by developing the company’s image and exporting the wine internationally.

Today Eric is at the head of the family business. His estate covers 15 hectares and produces only Pinot Noir. The Armand Rousseau company offers a total of 7 AOC Grands Cru: Chambertin, Chambertin-Clos de Bèze, Charmes Chambertin, Clos de la Roche, Mazis Chambertin, Ruchottes Chambertin, Mazoyère Chambertin. In addition an AOC Village is sold: the Gevrey Chambertin.

The Armand Chambertin company produces 65,000 bottles a year, 75% of which are exported internationally. The company’s privileged customers are private individuals, wine merchants and starred restaurateurs.

With a distribution channel reserved for wine merchants, starred restaurants and hand-picked individuals, there is no doubt that the wines of the House of Armand Rousseau are divine. We have had the opportunity several times to sell bottles from this great wine house.
