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

92 Points Decanter
The 2019 is a fabulous wine, with ripe apple fruit showing a citrusy edge to it, balanced acidity and impressive length on the palate. Roulot now farms 5ha of vines in this appellation, located between the village and the Route Nationale, spread over eight parcels. The fruit is lightly crushed and fermented in cask (mostly used) before ageing for one year. Drinking Window 2021 – 2029.

87-89 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Offering up scents of pear, citrus oil, white flowers, peach and freshly baked bread, the 2019 Bourgogne Blanc is medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with racy acids, fine concentration and a fleshy but precise profile. This is another success in the making.

87-89 Points Allen Meadows
A ripe nose features notes of mostly white orchard fruit and lemon-lime nuances. There is very good richness to the energetic medium weight flavors that culminate in a chiseled, clean and very dry finale. This too is an excellent Bourgogne and highly recommended.
