Following a visit to the Domaine last month, we have now received a small allocation of Pierre-Henri Rougeot 2020’s which I would like to share with you.
This is the négoce operation of Domaine Rougeot in Meursault (famous for producing two bottlings of some of their plots, one with low sulphur and one ‘sans soufre’).
With his négoce Pierre Henri is Organic and where possible trying to be bio-dynamic. Low use of new oak with none now for the négoce, very limited production and plots he knows the growers well (it’s a swap not a purchase so quality is high) and wines perform above expectations. Some is fruit (Sous la Velle) he buys from his own Domaine.
Jasper Morris (insideburgundy.com) scores some of these very respectably but has not tasted the full range. Of the nineteen Domaine and Pierre-Henri Rougeot 2020 wines Jasper has published notes on recently, seven of these received 5 stars denoting ‘An outstanding wine in its category. This accolade will be given very rarely, certainly to less than 10% of wines tasted across the year. A generic Bourgogne might deserve this reward if it merits 89 or 90 points whereas a Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles would need 96 for the same result.’
The quantities made are very small and the quality left us seriously impressed. These are well made wines with energy and purity of fruit. Let me know if this looks interesting and if you’d like to discuss further.
