About the Winemaker:
Guy Roulot, a legendary producer of some of the finest Meursaults, if not some of the world's finest white wines, took his family's small production domaine to stardom. Guy's marriage to Genevieve Coche and his own hard work added more prime parcels to the family's holdings, which he vinified and bottled separately - a novelty for a domaine which had been distilling, rather than vinifying, their grapes just a generation before. 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.

Ratings & Reviews

90-92 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"Ripe, fresh and cool aromas feature notes of hazelnut, pear and white peach along with plenty of floral and spice nuances. There is notably more volume if a bit less refinement to the rich and full-bodied flavors that coat the palate with sap while delivering outstanding depth and length on the sleek and balanced finish that really fans out. A most impressive villages." (Jun 11, 2017)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"(the crop level here was about 33 hectoliters per hectare, similar to the Tillets): Bright light yellow. Aromas of mandarin orange, spices and flowers. Very concentrated, tactile wine; a step up in intensity from the preceding wines, showing deep soft citrus and spice flavors accented by menthol and anise. Finishes very suave and quite long, dusty but not dry or phenolic and not a bit austere." - Stephen Tanzer (Sep 2017)
