Domain Roulot 2017 Bourgogne Blanc, Burgundy, France

Winemaker: Jean-Marc Roulot

Farming: Organic

Variety: Chardonnay, 30-40 year-old vines

Terroir: Clay and limestone soils, with vines planted in the village of Meursault

Vinification:  A rigorous sorting of the grapes follows the harvest. Fermented in wooden  vats, an average of 15-18% of which is new. Wines undergo malolactic fermentation  and after malo, wines are racked into stainless steel vats, on the lees. 

Ageing: age in barrel for 11 months and stainless steel for 7 more months.

Notes: The wines of Domaine Roulot are now among the most sought after wines  in all of Burgundy.  Jean-Marc has been successful in fine-tuning the  domaine’s particular, stand-out style.  While Domaine Roulot had once  pioneered the single-vineyard bottlings of Meursault, they were now  influencing other domaines to follow suit, thereby raising the stakes in  this exalted appellation. What sets the domaine even further apart is  Jean-Marc’s commitment to a bright, chiseled, thoroughbred style of  Meursault, while many other wines of this village tend towards richness  and concentration. Jean-Marc’s wines certainly express a certain depth  and sumptuousness thanks to the appellation’s terroir, however  his wines also show focus and restraint. Their elegance and amazing  precision lend themselves to long aging in the cellars. Jean-Marc loves  cooking believes the strong mineral backbone of his wines and their  fresh acidity marry well with food. This is why one is more likely to  find their wines in restaurants rather than in wine shops
