Critic Notes

Some readers may argue that the Echezeaux is as profound as the Vosne-Romanee-Cros Parantoux. Yes, the difference is negligible. Its nose offers up lavish quantities of sweet black fruits, floral, mineral, and toasty new oak scents. The wine boasts great intensity, medium to full body, gobs of black-cherry and black-raspberry fruit, and an opulent, glycerin-imbued, lusciously intense finish. More forward than the Vosne-Romanee-Cros Parantoux and not as dense or crammed with extract, it should drink well for the next 10-12 years.||It is no secret that the genius behind the wines of the young Emmanuel Rouget is the legendary Henri Jayer. His 1990 offerings are a testament to Jayer's winemaking style, which, in simplistic terms, includes 4-5 days of cold maceration, 100% new oak casks, minimal racking, and bottling without a filter. Rouget's recent releases are exciting wines, including two terrific villages wines. Wine Advocate.October, 1992

Producer Portrait: Domaine Potinet-Ampeau
One of our most memorable visits and tastings this year was in Monthelie at the historic cellars of Domaine Potinet Ampeau. Ever since trying a collection of their aged whites a couple of years ago I’ve been captivated by the pristine quality and structure of their very mature white wines. This autumn we were finally able to discover the cellars ...

Domaine Georges Roumier Vertical Tasting
A very special thank you to Jordi Orriols-Gil for sourcing the incredible collection below and making this evening possible. It is not often one sits down to a 30-wine vertical tasting over dinner. And when 27 out of those 30 wines are Domaine Georges Roumier Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru, dating from 2007 all the way back to 1945, it's hard not to ...

F+R Visits Domaine Leroy
Visiting Domaine Leroy is a highlight on any fine wine calendar and this year seemed ever more fortunate, finding the 2017s as composed as they will ever be, finishing up their last week of élevage in barrel before bottling planned for next week. On top of that Gilles points out that the 2017s have been the most consistently expressive vintage ...
