2002 Domaine Roulot Meursault ‘Perrières’ 1er Cru

$2,499.00

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 be exceedingly difficult to obtain; and above all, they are absolutely compelling.

Drawing from a little less than nine hectares of vineyards, including four premier 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.

Roulot’s wines are invariably very complex wines, whilst less rich than those of, say, Comte Lafon, they are still fully-flavoured and age superbly.

Description

94 Points Allen Meadows
A still quite fresh and expressive nose is both strikingly elegant and pure with its secondary-tinged aromas of pear, green apple and acacia blossom and mineral reduction. The overtly stony, intense and chiseled medium-bodied flavors possess excellent density along with superb length and very fine complexity. This is brilliantly transparent and the mouth feel is akin to rolling small pebbles around in the mouth. Just as it was when I originally reviewed it however, it is the amazing persistence that I find so riveting as the finish just goes on and on. For my taste this has arrived at its peak though it should have no trouble remaining at this level for another 5 to perhaps even 10 years.

92 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Gravel, minerals, stones, and spices can be discerned in the nose of the 2002 Meursault Perrieres. Light to medium-bodied, satiny-textured, and deep, this fresh mineral and spice-flavored wine possesses a lengthy, pure, detailed finish.
