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. 

From vines planted in the 1920s in the lieu-dit of La Combe de Bazin in Saint-Romain, a lesser-known appellation, but perhaps one of the best value from Domaine Rougeot. These wines are often leaner style of Burgundy and very expressive even in their youth.

Hand-harvested grapes are pressed whole bunch, 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 the wine's purity. The wine is not fined, and no sulphur is added before bottling.
