A groundbreaking estate in Meursault, Roulot has long been the master of the lieu-dit - that is, isolating tiny plots within a grander vineyard site, or even producing lesser-known sites such as Narvaux or Les Tillets much as you would a top Premier Cru. This creates a seamless, transparent view of each vineyard's unique personality and has proven to be the hallmark of the legendary domaine.

Domaine Roulot

When Guy Roulot passed suddenly in 1982, his son Jean-Marc had no plans on becoming the heir to the winemaking throne as he was pursuing a career as an actor. When he finally completed his oenological schooling and took over in 1989, he still had much to learn - his fermentations initially struggled after he overzealously cleaned the winery. However, blessed with a bountiful selection of the best vineyards in Meursault, the quality of those vines shone through with ease. In contrast to the wines of Coche-Dury or even Lafon, the Domaine Roulot wines under Jean-Marc's direction have been an example of restraint - a focused prism on the terroir of each bottling, without much new oak use (15-18% on average) and an overall style that rewards long aging in the cellar.

The Aligoté is fermented in stainless steel, but all of the other white wines are fermented in oak, with a light batonnage every 3-4 weeks until malo-lactic begins. The aging for all Meursaults is performed in both stainless and barrel.

Perhaps the most sought-after bottlings are the Perrieres, Charmes and Poruzots, but not to be missed are the Clos des Boucheres and Les Luchets, whenever they can be found! Perrieres and Charmes are the oldest vineyards and provide the most richness of the Roulot wines, while the Narvaux and Tillets vineyards are the highest-altitude vineyards and have a more fine, crystalline and tart quality in their youth.

Vinous

Vinous

94

Bright lemon-yellow color with a green tinge. Crushed stone, lemon, lime, orange and hazelnut on the youthful but already complex nose. Sweet and impressively concentrated, with outstanding depth to the flavors of orange zest, ripe pineapple, hazelnut and crushed rock. Even richer than the Charmes but this shows a higher pitch and more hillside energy. This tactile, very long wine has the mineral spine and intensity for a leisurely evolution in bottle. (Incidentally, assistant Eric Bodin opened a bottle of the 2010 Tillets following the '11 Perrieres. That wine showed classic orange, hazelnut and mineral aromas; outstanding sweetness and depth of flavor; and great fat and chewiness. Owing to its explosive, echoing finish and tactile mineral quality, I would probably have picked this wine blind as another Perrieres. I rated this stunning bottle 94+?).
