  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

    (from a crop level of 18 hectoliters per hectare; 11.8% potential alcohol, chaptalized to 12.8%): Deep, bright red, the darkest 2012 in the cellar. Compelling floral lift to the pure dark berry and sexy oak aromas. The dense, seamless flavors of crushed berries and flowers are wonderfully sweet and urgent. The spreading, extremely long finish saturates the palate with blueberry, violet and minerals and leaves the taste buds quivering. Despite this superb wine's extremely suave tannins, it will be better for seven or eight years of cellaring.

    There are four barrels of the 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Cros Parantoux, the famous premier cru shared with Meo-Camuzet. It has a deeper and a relatively broody bouquet when compared to the Echezeaux, and here it refuses to open up. But one can detect real mineralite, a roiling intensity below. The palate is very harmonious, with a cashmere opening. The acidity is nicely judged and cuts through the swathe of rounded, corpulent red fruit. The finish is longer than the Echezeaux, with a spicy note loitering at the tip of the tongue.

  • 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.
