Domaine Robert Sirugue

Vosne-Romanée, Burgundy

Domaine Robert Sirugue owns around 11ha of vineyards. Part of them are sold under label of Domaine Robert Sirugue and rest of them are sold to negociants.

The siblings, Marie-France and Jean-Louis – the 4th generation of the family, are currently in charge of the Domaine after their father retired in early 2000s.

A key characteristic of their wines is the significant percentage of old vines in their holdings. Grapes are mostly destemmed – at least 80%. The over-achiever in their cellar is the 1er Cru Les Petits Monts which stands head to head with other illustrious producers in that vineyard. The crown jewel of their cellar, meanwhile, is the Grands-Echezeaux with 1-2 barrels of it made each year. Very Rare! Grands Echezeaux was featured in the Japanese comic “Drop of God” as the 10th apostle.
