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.  Reds are whole bunch fermentations, the Passetoutgrain is a field blend of 30% Gamay and 70% Pinot Noir 

This lieu-dit is situated 500m from Meursault-Charmes and delivers a wine of complexity well above its appellation. 

Vinification is done with natural yeasts, with elevage in a mix of new and old barrels.  Marc often experiments with different types of wood such as chestnut and acacia.  No SO2 is added at bottling, or during fermentation and elevage.  'Les Grandes Gouttes' is handpicked; the grapes are sorted in the vineyard on the Domaine's sorting table.  After being pressed, it begins its alcoholic fermentation in a concrete vat.  It is then pumped into French oak barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation.  A small percentage of 5% new oak is used for this ?Les Grandes Gouttes? bringing a desirable freshness.  The wine matures in oak barrels for 18 months, delivering a nice textural and round body to the wine.
