“*Sweet Spot* A classic Meursault nose consists of pure and very fresh hazelnut, white orchard fruit and acacia blossom aromas that are trimmed in subtle wood nuances. The borderline painfully intense medium-bodied flavors possess excellent punch and very good mid-palate concentration before terminating in a taut and delineated finish that displays a distinct saline character along with hints of citrus. This beautifully understated wine of finesse is notably finer than the Porusot if not possessing nearly the same degree of power.” Burghound
Since taking over the family's winery, Guy Roulot, a legendary producer of some of the finest Meursaults, if not some of the world’s finest white wines, took this family’s small production domaine to stardom. As a result, Domaine Roulot has become the master of the lieu-dit, not to mention the five premier cru parcels they farm in Meursault and Monthelie. Guy’s sudden death in 1982 left the family in transition, as his son, Jean-Marc was in Paris pursuing a career in acting. A series of three winemakers aided in the changeover until 1989, when Jean-Marc was at last ready to take on the direction of the estate.
Since then, Jean-Marc’s progress has brought even more notice to a domaine that had already enjoyed a great reputation. The wines of Domaine Roulot are now among the most sought after wines in all of Burgundy. Jean-Marc has been successful in fine-tuning the domaine’s particular, stand-out style. What sets the domaine apart is Jean-Marc’s commitment to a bright, chiseled style of Meursault. His wines certainly express a certain depth and sumptuousness thanks to the appellation’s terroir, however they also show focus and restraint. Their elegance and amazing precision lend themselves to long aging in the cellars.
