Burgundy is a facinating place, and even very famous producers like Domaine Armand Rousseau have “secret” wines that are not sold commercially.
We already covered the Gevrey-Chambertin Clos du Chateau, but there is actually another even more unknown Rousseau bottling … the Bourgogne Blanc.
Domaine Armand Rousseau Bourgogne Blanc
It appears that Domaine Rousseau produce a – presumably – small amount of Bourgogne Blanc.
According to my sources the wine is produced from a vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin, and supposedly made from Chardonney, Pinot Blanc and Aligoté. The wine is presumably produced for private consumption at chez Rousseau, and not sold commercially.
I have not seen or tasted this wine myself, but a friend provided me with the photos below. Please note the cork was intended for a Chambertin 2009 … and not for this slightly more modest wine, this just underlines that this wine is for non commercial use only.
