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

90-93 Points Allen Meadows
A naturally spicy, even exotic, nose is comprised by notes of cool citrus, jasmine and orange pekoe tea along with hints of apple and acacia blossom. The sleek, intense and delicious medium weight flavors possess both fine richness and a lovely minerality that adds a sense of lift to the beautifully long finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth.

90-93 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Aromas of citrus zest, fresh bread and white flowers introduce the 2019 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières, a medium to full-bodied, satiny-textured wine that’s bright and lively. This is a charming, giving Genevrières in the making.
