Sourced from a single parcel just below the village, Rougeot's Meursault 'Sous la Velle' is a classic and nuanced bottle of Côte d'Or Chardonnay. Since Pierre-Henri returned to the estate in 2010, the domaine has transitioned to organic farming in the vines and implements a natural, hands-off approach in the cellar.
