- Presentation of the winery
From 1979, Emmanuel Rouget learned with his famous uncle Henri Jayer. In 1985, Emmanuel Rouget produced his first wine. It gradually took over the vineyards of his uncle, to take the entire estate when Henri Jayer died in 2006. He continues using the same methods as his uncle. Emmanuel Rouget is probably the only heir to the Henri Jayer style of wine: fine, elegant wines, racy, fruity with a beautiful complexity.
- Cros Parantoux
It was Henri Jayer who detected the uniqueness of Cros Parantoux. In the 50s, this vintage of 1.01 ha was the exclusive property of Mrs. Noirot - Camuzet. This wine had a very bad reputation, because it required a lot of work for very little result. In fact, the floor is made of a very thin layer of calcareous clay on a bed of pebbles, the soil is therefore very poor, rocky and cold. These conditions give a beautiful natural acidity and very refreshing to the vines. In accordance with Mrs. Noirot-Camuzet, he busied himself to maintain the vineyard, in exchange for half the production. The wine was sold under the label of the field Meo-Camuzet. Over the years, Henri Jayer bought piece by piece this area, for 71 acres and 77 centiares and became the principal owner. In 1978, Henri Jayer markets for the first time the production of Cros Parantoux under its own label.

Heir to the Jayer style
Since 1979, Emmanuel Rouget has learned a lot from his famous uncle Henri Jayer (one of the best winemakers in the entire word). In 1985, Emmanuel Rouget produced his very first wine. He gradually came into possession of his uncle’s vineyards, then inherited the entire Flagey-Echezeaux estate (located on the Côte de Nuits) when Henri Jayer died in 2006.
He still continues to use the same methods as his uncle: spur-pruning, low yields, respect for the soils and harvesting when grapes are ripe. Like his uncle Henri used to say: "A great wine is made in the vineyard, not in the cellar." That's why Emmanuel Rouget is probably one of the best heirs to the Henri Jayer style of Burgundy wines: fine, elegant, racy and fruity; with a beautiful complexity.
