Professional Reviews For This Wine


Burghound | Rating: 89

A ripe, complex and still mostly primary fruited nose with a slightly green undercurrent that continues onto the palate. There is also an ever-so-slight spritz that causes this to seem a touch greener than it probably is. In short, this is perfectly pleasant but it needs a minimum of 30 minutes in a decanter to really open up and even, this is more of a solid than great wine. Drink now or hold for another 2 to 3 years first.

The medium to dark ruby-colored 1997 Echezeaux offers a nose packed with dark cherries and notes of grilled oak. This is a large, masculine, structured wine, crammed with blackberries and cassis. It is rich, sweet, complex, medium to full-bodied, and has an admirably persistent finish.

Beautiful wine, drinking perfectly now. Echezeau has some of the wildness in it, great fruit, primary, but still excellent structure

About This Producer


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.
