Just be tempted by the Burgundy wines treasures issued from the Domaine Roux4 min read
Since 1885, the Domaine Roux promotes its own vision of Burgundy, from the charming village of Saint-Aubin, where their fruity vine plots are spread over 15 villages. This varied territory offers a wide range, while revealing as much as possible the purity of premium grapes and the unique character of a distinct terroir, depending on each specific location. For instance, this domain has been spreading from the Côte de Nuits, passing by the magnificent plots of Chambolle and Vougeot (photo credits: Domaine Roux).
Nowadays, the Maison Roux, once run by Marcel, was lately and successively joined by his three sons (Christian, Régis and Emmanuel), in order to pursue the heritage of this domain, composed of multiple appellations. At the same time, the team can’t stop to develop their portfolio of new appellations, such as Rully and Mercurey in Côte Chalonnaise, as well as in Côte de Beaune with Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Ladoix. Without forgetting in Côte de Nuits starring the illustrious Gevrey-Chambertin, Vougeot and Chambolle-Musigny nectars. Cherry on the cake, a new acquisition cycle has been operating those last years with the acquisition of renowned vineyards, notably in Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet and again in Saint-Aubin.
Adding to this, a very precise plot vinification has been operating since the early 2000s, within a reasoned, sustainable and ecological approach, in order to preserve as much as possible the origin and the expression of the fruit, and its terroir. This fair engagement became possible thanks to fewest possible inputs in the vineyard and in the cellar.
Among the long range of wines proposed by the Domaine Roux Père & Fils, we invite you to have a further look into their amazing 2019 millesime, fully composed of Chardonnay, baptized Les Murelles. Supported by tasty grapes picked by hand, we find here a classic winemaking, along a smart use of modern technologies, especially concerning the temperature control during the fermentation process.
About this great wine, aged in oak barrels for a year before bottling, the result is a bright yellow robe with some green undertones. Once in mouth, don’t miss its balanced concentration of explicit aromas of yellow fruits (including apple, pears but also citrus fruits), able to bewitch your palate with mineral fresh notes, before an unmissable length on the finish. At last, we recommend to keep this juice in your cellar between 3 and 5 years, and eventually appreciate it with some seafood, various fish dishes or fine cheese.
A red Rully wine from 2020, is also proposed by the Domaine Roux, in a modern and unifying style offering a beautiful clairvoyant red color. This juice, made from pinot noir, develops various elegant aromas of fresh red fruits as well as light but perceptible floral notes.
In another hand, the Domaine Roux has as well recently unveiled a delicious crémant, grown as Blanc de Blancs. This sparkling wine, made according to Champagne traditional method, proposing a wide aromatic palette around white flowers, citrus but also dried fruits.
