Emmanuel Rouget Echezeaux & Cros Parantoux Dinner with Guillaume Rouget - SOLD OUT

Date: 6th November 2015
Time: 7:00 PM
Venue: Amuse Bouche, 22/F, The Hennessy building, 256 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai
Price: HKD12,800 per person

This evening we dig deep to discover the character of both Echezeaux and Cros Parantoux through one of Burugndy’s great domaines – Emmanuel Rouget.

Rouget began making his own Echezeaux in 1985, trained and assisted by Henri Jayer. Rouget assisted Jayer at his domaine, and Jayer provided many years of mentoring for Rouget.

 

In 1989 the first Cros Parantoux under the Rouget label appeared, sitting alongside that of Méo-Camuzet and Henri Jayer (Jayer retired – officially – in 1991, but Cros Parantoux, in small quantities, continued at Domaine Henri Jayer until the 2001 vintage). It is this vineyard that is perhaps most closely associated with Henri Jayer, because it was Jayer who brought it back from desolation, the first vintage appearing with this name in 1978.

 

The wines from Domaine Emmanuel Rouget share much of the energy and reserve of Jayer’s. These are immaculately made wines with a sense of depth and wildness, that reward long cellaring.

 

This evening’s core focus is Rouget’s Cros Parantoux – 8 vintages. The full complement of 13 wines includes 5 vintages of Rouget’s Echezeaux. To add to the insight this comparison will offer, all 5 vintages of Echezeaux match vintages of Cros Parantoux, so we will see the difference in expression of these two great vineyards, as well as vintage expression and the ageing curve of these wines.

 

It is also with great pleasure that our special guest this evening, at this small, single table event, will be Guillaume – Emmanuel Rouget’s son.

 

All in all, an exceptionally special evening at Amuse Bouche is in store. For so small and intimate dinner, seats are very limited indeed. Don’t hesitate!
