2012 Domaine Roulot Meursault ‘Clos des Bouchères’ 1er Cru


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.

93 Points Allen Meadows
A gorgeous, elegant and pure nose offers up aromas of white flowers, citrus rind, pear, apple and discreet mineral notes. The ultra-refined and intense middle weight flavors possess excellent delineation before culminating in a relatively dry, linear and focused finish that displays real drive. This strikingly pretty and well-balanced effort is an exercise in harmony and finesse with a delicate mouth feel. While this will probably be approachable after only 5 to 7 years, it should be capable of repaying up to a decade of cellar time.

94 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2012 has a slightly more herbaceous bouquet than the Porusot, with touches of nettle and Japanese mirin – introspective, bashful at first but growing in confidence in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with a slight viscosity on the entry, a little more phenolic, with almond, hints of fennel and lemongrass. This is a totally absorbing and cerebral Meursault.
