Rougeot Père & Fils – Bourgogne Côte d’Or Les Vaux – 2020
Directly from Meursault from the “Les Vaux” parcel, this majestic Pinot Noir is produced from the oldest vineyards with 70 years of age, from which wines with volume and structure are made thanks to the soils rich in limestone. The grapes are vinified spontaneously whole cluster with the use of indigenous yeasts in steel tanks for 15-20 days with the help of daily pumping over and punching down. Malolactic fermentation and aging on the lees are then carried out in oak barrels for at least 18 months before bottling. A superb wine is obtained, rich in color and aromas from ripe fruit to noble spice, on the palate it is direct but complex, long on the finish in a context of total elegance.

In the heart of the Cote de Beaune, in the village of Meursault lies domaine Rougeot Père et fils, a small family-run winery that no longer goes unnoticed. Founded in 1926 in an old farmhouse from the 1700s that it already owned, the business began during the 1970s with Marc Rougeot, who replanted and purchased parcels in some of the most significant Cru: Meursault, Monthelie, St.Romain, Pommard and Volnay. Today the winery is carried on by his son Pierre-Henry, who manages 13 hectares where Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are grown (vineyards from 40 to 90 years old!) along with a small part of Aligoté and Gamay, all using Organic methods that earned certification in 2020. A style rich in tradition is followed, manual work with spontaneous and separate vinifications of each parcel, maceration of whole clusters with little or even no sulfur added during the process, aging in oak barrels longer than 12 months. One of the most interesting Domaine to discover this world. Bienvenue en Bourgogne!
