Celebrating another publication this year, for a total of 13 pieces: 10 short stories and 3 installments of the beverage column, Liquid Carriage at No Contact.
Described to me by the owner and resident vino at Frankly in TriBeCa as an electric Chenin that changes over a few days from slightly bready to fresh and zippy to Burgundian-like.
I had to experience this chameleon of flavors.
Fresh Focaccia on the nose. Bready and boozy in the bouquet. Aromas of tropical fruit, papaya and lemongrass.
Super well balanced, fresh acid, nice RS, beautiful softness like rose petal mouthfeel.
Love this. So much. — 3 days ago
What a nice bottle, classy and elegant vegetal and green pepper notes that only Rougeard can do as a signature. Everything is there, class, texture, contained power, fruit, length, balance, gorgeous.
Quel beau vin! Des notes végétales avec classe et élégance, on retrouve cela chez Rougeard seulement. Un vin savoureux, du fruit, des notes fines de poivron mais à peine, longueur, volume, texture, tout y est malgré un millésime moyen.. 93-94

Funky nose of bree cheese, saffron, brett, mushrooms, yeast, quince, chalky minerals, and lemon. Salty citrus on the palate, lemon, tart peach, white pepper, granite, and gunpowder. Low alcohol, high mineral notes, and medium plus to high acid. Would match well with soft and fragrant cheeses as well as shellfish. — 12 days ago
