Domaine Roulot, Meursault 1er Cru Clos des Boucheres, 2016

$449.00
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.

From a Cru that has been a monopole of Roulot's since 2011, this was superb in 2016, really just a hair behind the the Perierres in quality. 

Burghound writes: "Elegant, airy and pure aromas are composed by notes of essence of apple, white flower, citrus and a whiff of matchstick character. There is a lovely sense of refinement to the nicely energetic and beautifully well-detailed flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the sleek, focused and impressively long finish. This is a really lovely effort."

Domaine Roulot

The name Roulot is now a synonym for the very best wine that the village of Meursault can offer. It is rather remarkable when you consider that just 2 generations back the Roulot's were known as producers of Burgundian brandy and eau de vie. But Guy Roulot began leveraging the family's distilling success to purchase small plots of vines in Meursault and by the 1970's was known as a pioneer for producing top quality chardonnay from distinct parcels or ""lieu-dits"".

When Guy passed away unexpectedly in the early '80's his son Jean-Marc was pursuing acting in Paris. In 1989 he returned to take on the reigns of the small Domaine and in the following decades built on his fathers success so well that the wines are now extremely hard to acquire and to afford for most of us.
