Medium deep red, with some volatile. There is a generosity of fruit in the mouth, alongside more volatile notes appearing at the finish, but if you are less sensitive to volatility then there is a lot going for this. Dry at the finish before sweeter notes emerge once again. Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy. (2019 review) 100% Pinot Noir.
The Rougeot family has produced wine for five generations on appellations including Meursault-Charmes, Meursault “Sous la Velle”, Meursault “Monatine”, Volnay-Santenots, Pommard “Clos des Roses”, Monthélie “Les Toisières”, Saint-Romain “La Combe Bazin”, and regional appellations Bourgogne Chardonnay and Bourgogne Pinot Noir.
Producer and owner Marc Rougeot, now alongside his sons Pierre-Henri and Alexandre, energetically continue the family tradition with a mixture of modern, organic and traditional processes that get the best out of every vintage. The Domaine is going to be fully certified organic farming in 2018.
In recent times, the Domaine has significantly developed the quality of their reds and as a result they have reached new heights. They are defined by elegance, silkiness and stunning subtle fruit.
The whites at Domaine Rougeot are refined, generous and seductive. They celebrate the famed qualities of the region; evoking the tastes of the beautiful Côte de Beaune. - Importer Note
