Domaine Roulot

Jean-Marc Roulot has developed something of cult-like status for his wines, perhaps second only to those of Coche-Dury in the village of Meursault.  The reasons for this are quite simple: they are of excellent quality; they can been exceedingly difficult to obtain; and above all, they are absolutely compelling.meursault-vines.jpg

Drawing from a little less than nine hectares of vineyards, including four premiers crus of painfully small sizes, the vineyards have all been organic for around 20 years, and in more recent times are gradually being converted to biodynamics.  Winemaking is quite restrained, the harvested fruit sorted both at picking and on the tables at the winery, before a gentle pneumatic pressing for 90 minutes.  The wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for 16-18 months in barrel - 10% (Bourgogne) to 30% (premiers crus) of which is new.  Minimal batonnage is emploed, only in high-acid vintages, and none after malolactic fermentations are complete.

Roulot's wines are invariably very complex wines, whilst less rich than those of, say, Comte Lafon, they are still fully-flavoured and age supberly.  Of particular note are the series of six lieu-dit bottlings - the so-called 'second growths' of Meursault.  Les Luchets in particular offering superb ageing potential.
