Roulot is one of the most celebrated names in Burgundy. Taut, precise, and rippling with tension, Jean-Marc Roulot’s Meursaults are magnificent interpretations of this benchmark appellation and among the world’s most in-demand wines.
 
Domaine Roulot rose to prominence under Jean-Marc’s pioneering father Guy in the mid-20th century. Through astute vineyard purchases and marriage to Geneviève Coche (another of Burgundy’s superstar vinous families), he became known for serious single-vineyard bottlings of Meursault’s village lieux-dits.

Since Guy’s death in 1989, Jean-Marc has expanded the estate to 15 hectares, acquiring vines in Meursault’s finest parcels and working with top growers in climats including lofty Chevalier-Montrachet and Corton-Charlemagne for his micro-négociant project.
 
In contrast to the rich, buttery style made famous in textbooks, Roulot’s high-definition Meursaults combine tension and clarity. They have exceptional ageing potential and begin to reveal their brilliance 8-10 years from release. The Bourgogne Blanc and Aligoté are two of Burgundy’s true bargains, offering a finesse that far exceeds their ‘humble’ appellations.
 
In this selection of Roulot’s wines from 2019 – one of the most exciting white Burgundy vintages of the last decade – Jean-Marc once again affirms his place among the Côte d’Or’s most talented winemakers.

The perfect balance of silkiness and tension. Lacy, smoky, electric – this has it all.
