Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, January 2008

Emmanuel ages this wine in 100% new French oak, a technique that he learned from his late uncle, Henri Jayer. But, it is undetectable as its concentration gently folds in any overt spice or cedary aromas. Mouthfilling with lots of dark berry fruit and chalky, fine tannins, this wine is dense and oh so multi-layered. Impressive. Drink 2011 - 2022+.

Producer

Emmanuel Rouget

Emmanuel Rouget is one of Burgundy's greatest wine makers who also owns some of the region's finestvineyards. A man of reticent nature, he is reflective and sensitive, yet with some gentle persuasion, he is happy to discuss his wines, his vineyards and his winemaking. His uncle was the late great Henri Jayer from whom he had learned enormously. In fact, Emmanuel had been tending Henri's vineyards and making his wines when his uncle retired in 1991. But he also hasbeen making his own wines since 1985 with his own parcels of vines some of which border those of Henri. His style is not dissimilar to his uncle's. They are pure, old fashioned and complex with a streakof undeniable wildness. They are often difficult to taste from barrel, but with time, their pedigree reveals itself.

Region

Echézeaux, Red Burgundy

One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Relatively large and consequently diverse for a Grand Cru, the better Echézeaux wines undoubtedly deserve this status. As always in Burgundy vineyard location and grower is critical.
