Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Emmanuel Rouget is a nephew of Burgundy legend Henri Jayer, his mentorship passed on a infectious enthusiasm and deep knowledge of winemaking. He has stayed true to many of Henri’s preferences such as a focus of ultra low yields and maturing the major wines in 100% new oak barrels. His wines are much sought after.
La Revue du Vin de France 18.5 Vinous 90
Good medium red. Aromas of dark cherry, licorice, minerals and violet. Broad, sappy and subtly sweet, but less expressive today than the village Vosne. Silky in texture but more savory and soil-driven than fruity or floral. Finishes saline, classically dry and long.
