Pierre-Henri Rougeot has been quietly producing impeccable minimal intervention, low-sulphur wines since he returned to the family Domaine in 2010. 

Today, the Rougeot vineyards are farmed organically, and Pierre-Henri?s no sulphur vinification effortlessly balances a natural wine approach with traditional Burgundian technique to create wines with energy and balance.  Each individual terroir is bottled separately though often there is a bottling with a small addition of sulphur and one with zero added.

Whites are new wave Meursault, so tension over fatness, but still with a richness of fruit that typifies the village. 

La Monatine is at the bottom of the village of Meursault, right next to Sous la Velle. This Bourgogne Blanc lieu-dit makes supple and accessible wines and this cuvee is bottled 'sans soufre', without any sulphur addition. Only tiny quantities are bottled in this way, so don't miss out on trying this vibrant and pure expression.

Hand-harvested grapes are pressed whole-bunch, and the juice is allowed to cold settle for a few days before beginning fermentation with indigenous yeasts in neutral barrels. The wine is aged on fine lees with no stirring to maintain purity.
