2017 Domaine Roulot Bourgogne Blanc Cote de Beaune
Winemaker Notes: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. While Domaine Roulot had once pioneered the single-vineyard bottlings of Meursault, they were now influencing other domaines to follow suit, thereby raising the stakes in this exalted appellation. What sets the domaine even further apart is Jean-Marc’s commitment to a bright, chiseled, thoroughbred style of Meursault, while many other wines of this village tend towards richness and concentration. Jean-Marc’s wines certainly express a certain depth and sumptuousness thanks to the appellation’s terroir, however his wines also show focus and restraint. Their elegance and amazing precision lend themselves to long aging in the cellars. Jean-Marc loves cooking and believes the strong mineral backbone of the wines and their fresh acidity marry well with food. This is why one is more likely to find their wines in restaurants rather than in wine shops.
Domaine Roulot Bourgogne Blanc is made from 30-40 years old vines planted in the village of Meursault in clay and limestone soil. Very ageworthy and always in short supply.
Decanter - "This brilliant white is made with grapes from 13 parcels spread across Meursault from north to south. Very lightly wooded, this is all about leesy, smoky, struck-match complexity with undertones of aniseed and vanilla spice."
