This masterpiece, crafted by one of Burgundy's most revered families, invites you on a journey into the heart of a Grand Cru brimming with power, finesse, and timeless elegance.

A Legacy Rooted in Terroir:

Domaine Armand Rousseau, a name whispered with reverence in Burgundy, carries a legacy dating back to 1940. From Armand's pioneering spirit to generations of meticulous craftsmanship, the Rousseau family has cultivated exceptional wines that sing the praises of Gevrey-Chambertin's finest terroirs. Among these, Mazis-Chambertin stands as a crown jewel.

Mazy-Chambertin's Unique Song:

Nestled in the northernmost reaches of Gevrey-Chambertin, Mazis-Chambertin presents a symphony of contrasts. Mazy-Bas, where Domaine Rousseau's parcel basks, boasts deep, limestone-rich soils and sun-drenched slopes. From this unique terroir, the 2016 vintage sings a distinctive song �a robust melody balanced by delicate nuance.

Crafted with Uncompromising Passion:

Every step of the winemaking process at Domaine Armand Rousseau is infused with respect for the fruit. Hand-harvested grapes undergo rigorous sorting, ensuring only the finest berries reach the vats. Traditional techniques, including cold maceration and gentle fermentation, are employed to capture the essence of Les Cazetiers' unique terroir.

A Tapestry of Power and Elegance:

Crafted with the utmost respect for nature, the 2016 Mazis-Chambertin reveals its essence in stages. A vibrant ruby robe beckons, hinting at the wine's hidden depths. Aromas of ripe cherry, earthy forest floor, and a touch of floral perfume rise from the glass, captivating the senses. On the palate, the wine erupts with energy �a harmonious interplay of rich fruit, vibrant acidity, and firm, mineral-infused tannins. The texture is silky, the finish long and hauntingly beautiful.

Own a Piece of History:

This is not just a wine; it's an investment in timeless excellence. While already in its early stages of evolution, the 2016 Mazis-Chambertin holds the promise of further revelation for decades to come. Own a piece of Gevrey-Chambertin's legacy and savour the soul of this Grand Cru masterpiece now or cellar it for future moments of pure delight.
