Rougeot’s are wines informed by both the more classical traditions of Burgundy as well as the vin nature of the Loire and Beaujolais, where Pierre-Henri has drank widely and made friends. The reds of the domaine are structured and made fully whole-cluster, showing tannin both from the winemaking style and the terroir of the Côte d’Or, plus a clear spine of acidity and minerality. The whites run the range from light and nimble to weighty and round, depending on the site. In the cellar, all wines are vinified completely without SO2 and see at least 9 to 12 months in barrel before bottling. If sulfur is deemed necessary, it’s added only when an individual barrel shows signs of volatility or imbalance. Wines with sulfur are bottled under the flagship label with an image of the domaine, whereas wines that are pristine and stable without needing additions are bottled under a diagonal die-cut label, indicating sans sulfites ajoutés. It’s important to note: while some of the cuvée designations might seem lower-end—Bourgogne Blanc or Rouge, for example—each bottling is a single-vineyard bottling; as such these wines convey much more detail than most wines of the same rank.

Probably the most classical white wine at the Domaine, this Meursault comes from a parcel nestled just beneath the actual village. Powerful, golden, with length.
