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.

Tasting Notes

88-91 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
There is enough reduction to mask the components of the nose though there is very good freshness and underlying tension to the agreeably textured and delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess really lovely precision on the clean, dry and ultra-pure finish where a touch of minerality appears. A villages of finesse.

91 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2011 Meursault Vireuils has a very perfumed bouquet with hints of lemon curd, apricot and passion fruit that is beautifully defined. The palate is well-balanced: fine minerality on the entry with a crisp, slightly leesy finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is a lovely, complete Meursault.
