Père & Fils
From the heart of Meursault,
we are delighted to welcome
Domaine Rougeot & Fils.
Pierre-Henri, having taken over from his father Marc, operates the 13 ha family estate producing wines of Meursault, Monthélie, Saint-Romain, Pommard and Volnay. He has been quietly producing impeccable minimal intervention, low-sulfur wines since he returned to the family domaine in 2010, farming the vineyards organically. Pierre-Henri’s no sulfur vinification effortlessly balances a natural wine approach with traditional Burgundian technique, creating wines with energy and balance. Each terroir from Aligoté and Passe-Tout-Grains through Premier Crus is bottled as a single-vineyard designate. The wines are energetic, precise, and delicious!
It is simply astounding that Domaine Rougeot has maintained a quiet profile
while producing such compelling wines and we can’t wait to share.
What to expect

Tart and ripe green apple and lemon, stony minerality, soft and elegant on the palate with balanced acidity and sweet oak.
‘Sous la Velle’
Meursault ‘Sous la Velle’, 2017
