  • Adjacent to the Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru, which separates it from Clos de Vougeot, Echézeaux is a Grand Cru of 30 hectares situated on slopes. Less prestigious than its big brother, Echézeaux is nevertheless just as much sought-after and is a characteristically soft wine with great finesse. These are fleshy and supple wines, due to their good acidity and fine tannins. L'Echézeaux stands out by its deep, intense and brilliant-red colour. Its aromas are elegant and fine. They evoke scents of precious exotic woods such as cedar.

    It is impossible to evoke Emmanuel Rouget without mentioning his uncle Henri Jayer, one of the most emblematic winemakers of Burgundy. When he passed away, Emmanuel Rouget inherited the family domaine located in Flagey-Echezeux. Trained at his school, he perpetuates the unique know-how of one of the masters of Pinot Noir especially on the mythical Cros Parantoux. Emmanuel Rouget has now made a name for himself thanks to his meticulousness both in the vineyard and the cellar. Yields are very low. Aging is skilfully done to keep the wines fresh. The grape harvest is 100% destemmed in the pure tradition of the domaine and fermentation is slow and carried out in line with the pre-fermentation maceration invented by Jayer. Emmanuel Rouget’s wines are always silky, fresh and energetic. Mythical wines that a lover of great Burgundy wines must taste at least once in life.
