Domaine Rougeot Volnay-Santenots 1er Cru 2022 MAGNUM

Country: France
Region: Burgundy
Grape: Pinot Noir
Colour: Red
Bottle Size: 150cl
Alcohol: 13.5%
Vintage: 2022
Organic

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 

The Santenots vineyard is technically in Meursault but the powerful reds from this area are named Volnay as a more elegant alternative to Meursault Rouge.  Pierre-Henri produces his most structured wine which will age so well.
