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. 

The fruit for Sous la Velle comes from a single organically certified parcel below the village of Meursault planted on clay-limestone soils. Throughout his winemaking Pierre-Henri keeps his sulphite use to a minimum, each year a small portion of his best parcels is bottled 'sans soufre' - without any sulphite additions - indicated by the more modern stripe label. Only a tiny quantity of this sans soufre cuvee was bottled, don't miss out on trying these pure expressions!
