About the Producer
Robert Sirugue is a family-run estate based in Vosne-Romanée. In 2000, Robert Sirugue passed the property on to his daughter and son, Marie-France and Jean-Louis, who represent the 4th generation of wine growers. The vineyards now occupy almost 12 hectares of sustainably grown vines including their jewel of Grands Echézeaux and parcels in Les Petits Monts and Les Mombies in Chambolle-Musigny. Most of the bottles disappear into top restaurants around the world which is why the wines are not better known despite their undisputed quality. We tasted the 2020s with Marie-France which were intense and beautifully balanced. Asked to compare the last two vintages, Marie-France thought that 2020 had a slight edge on the 2019s as the wines were more ‘nuanced’.
