  • 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.

    Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
