The “Sous la Velle” shows great generosity delivering plenty of white flowers, fresh white peach and almond flavours on the nose.

Pierre-Henri Rougeot is a young vigneron with generations of family roots in the town of Meursault. He grew up learning farming and the craft of winemaking with his father, and by studying in Beaune. In 2017, he decided to add one more activity, a small negoce where he could make wines his way. The fruit comes from his family Estate, vineyards which are farmed organically. The production is miniscule. Pierre-Henri makes his wines with little intervention, meaning No SO2 until bottling and no fining and no filtration. The reds are macerated with whole clusters, and age in neural barrels; the whites are pressed directly to barrels, with no battonage and aging sur lees. The “Sous la Velle” climat is located at the foot of the Meursault hill, opposite the Château de Meursault. It translates to “under the village.” In this part of Meursault, we find much richer soils and less limestone.

The “Sous la Velle” shows great generosity, delivering plenty of white flowers, fresh white peach and almond flavours on the nose. The palate is a powerful delivery of ripe stone fruit and rustic minerality. It goes well with poultry served with creamy sauce, foie gras, cured meat and a great range of seafood such as barramundi, lobster and crabs. Decant for 30 minutes prior to serving or age till 2023+. 100% Chardonnay.

"That must be one of the most elegant Meursault wines out there. The substance is here yet it gravitates on the palate like a ballet dancer. A must try."
