    ($278) Good deep red. Ripe, nuanced nose offers red fruits, coffee, mocha and underbrush. Suave and silky, with uncommon sweetness for this cuvee; perhaps less classic than the Cros Parantoux but rich and soil-inflected. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and notes of iron and tobacco.

    A ripe, expressive and airy nose that combines both upper and mid-level register fruit notes that include red pinot, black berry and violet notes trimmed in moderate wood spice as well as natural spice notes of clove and anise that can also be found on the round, rich and beautifully balanced big-bodied flavors that are powerful, long and more stylish than usual. This is a terrific Ech that should be capable of at least a decade's worth of improvement.

    From two parcels abutting Les Suchots, the Rouget 2005 Echezeaux displays scents of dried cranberry, strawberry jam, sweet spices, mint candy, and vanilla and caramel hints of its all new barrels. Richly fruited, with a jellied, toasted and roasted personality and an overtly creamy, fatty feel on the palate, it finishes with a sweet, jellied fruit character, cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa powder, caramel and resin. I much prefer the more oak-resistant, brighter, and more carnal character of the Beaumonts today, but you certainly can't fault this flattering Echezeaux on its ripeness, richness, or generosity. (I preferred the brash, bright 2004, from a vintage incidentally which Rouget decided could handle no new oak.)

  • 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.
