2014 Emmanuel Rouget Vosne Romanée ‘Cros Parantoux’ 1er Cru


The history of Domaine Emmanuel Rouget is forever tied to the famous vigneron Henri Jayer, Emmanuel’s uncle. By the early 1980s, Henri had already become one of the most legendary winemakers in Burgundy, influencing a generation of young vignerons in Burgundy and around the world.

Henri began to think about the future of his domaine and though he had two daughters, neither of them were interested in making wine. In 1985 he took on his nephew Emmanuel Rouget as his protégé and began leasing some of his vines to him. Over the years, Jayer gave up more and more vines to his nephew.

In 2001, following his retirement, all of his vines went under the control of Emmanuel Rouget, including the Georges Jayer vines, which have been vinified in the cellar of Rouget since 2002. Since 2011, the control of the domaine has passed to Emmanuel’s two sons Nicolas and Guillaume. Nicolas keeps watch over the vineyards while Guillaume is principally in the winery.

Reduction. There is a terrific sense of underlying tension to the tight and chiseled mineral-driven flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a hugely long, palate coating and seamlessly well-balanced finish. Textbook CP.

he 2014 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Cros Parantoux, of which there are seven barrels this year, has a beautifully defined bouquet, very pure and precise with wild strawberry, limestone, rose petal and a touch of blood orange. You miss a heartbeat just nosing this wine. The palate is precise, refined and very pure, a silver bead of acidity, so much energy on the finish as it fans out in graceful fashion. There is incredible persistence here, a brilliant Cros Parantoux with which Uncle Henri would have been proud.
