    Wonderfully rich and elegant fruit that is beginning to offer hints of secondary aromas that combine earth, spice, oak and smoke. The medium weight flavors are still quite vibrant and retain a touch of finishing structure though this has largely resolved itself, opening to beautiful richness and a seductive mouth coating finish. Beautiful juice and the velvety flavors display a deft winemaking touch. I would suggest drinking this now though it will certainly keep, if not necessarily improve, for another 10 years. Moreover, for those who are oak sensitive, the wood is definitely no longer subtle. To be sure, this is still an exceptionally pretty wine but one that has also seen its best days.

  • Following closely in the footsteps of his now-retired uncle - the legendary Henri Jayer - Emmanuel Rouget has carried the torch by producing some of Burgundy's classiest wine and garnering high critical acclaim. Young Emmanuel was working as a tractor engineer when Uncle Henri offered him a job in his vineyards. In 1985, saturated with the knowledge and passion for winemaking of his Uncle, Emmanuel started his own operation in Flagey.

    Under the watchful eye of Jayer, Rouget employed ultra low yields, pre-fermentation cold maceration and 100% new oak. The result has been wines that combine power with elegance, and depth with suppleness. His wines have received rave reviews and are highly sought after by connoisseurs and collectors the world over. Of special note is Emmanuel Rouget's Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Cros Parantoux, as only Rouget and Meo-Camuzet produce wine from this appellation. It possesses the class of a Grand Cru and is one of the most celebrated wines in all of Burgundy.
