Domaine Rougeot Mersault Sous La Velle 2020
Color/Style: White, Medium Full Bodied
Pierre-Henri Rougeot has been quietly producing impeccable minimal intervention, low-sulphur wines since he returned to the family Domaine in 2010.
Today, the Rougeot vineyards are farmed organically, and Pierre-Henri’s no sulphur vinification effortlessly balances a natural wine approach with traditional Burgundian technique to create wines with energy and balance. Each individual terroir is bottled separately though often there is a bottling with a small addition of sulphur and one with zero added.
'Sous la Velle' translates to 'beneath the village.' It's a specific lieu-dit located at the foot of the Meursault hill. It has richer soil and the grapes tend to ripen slower than the rest of the hill which is what gives the wine weight, texture and concentrated fruit.
Organic and biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, and unfined.
