2013 Domaine Roulot Meursault 1er Cru Clos des Boucheres #166287027
Based on 54 reviews on Cellartracker.com
Reviews 92 points Vinous "Pungent minerality on the nose and palate gives this wine an exhilarating light touch. Supple and refined, this lovely Meursault gained in sweetness as it opened in the glass, showing a honeyed quality to go with its saline minerality. Finishes very smooth and long, with noteworthy lift. (ST)" 93 points John Gilman "The 2013 Clos des Boucheres chez Roulot is also excellent, with all of the elegance of the vintage very much in evidence in its suave and quite wide open bouquet. The lovely nose wafts from the glass in a mix of apple, pear, white flowers, almonds, orange zest and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is quite a bit more reserved than the nose suggests, with its full-bodied format offering lovely fruit on the attack, a fine signature of soil, bright acids, excellent focus and grip and a long, pure and classy finish. From the mid-palate back, this wine is still quite bound up in its fine structural elements and it will really deserve at least a few years in the cellar to fully blossom and start to drink at its full potential. A lovely example of the vintage. (JG)"

About Domaine Roulot
Jean-Marc Roulot is one of Meursault’s greatest producers, an ardent advocate of purity and vibrancy, who won his stripes with hard work. After inheriting Domaine Roulot after his father’s untimely death in 1982, it took Jean-Marc years of working with mentor winemakers before he was ready to fully take the reins. Since achieving organic certification for his vineyards, he has put his own stamp of quality on the Domaine. In addition, he works with trusted growers around Burgundy to source only the finest fruit for a small négociant label that carries his name.
Restraint is key for keeping Jean-Marc’s wines crystalline and pure. In the vineyards, this means de-budding to keep yields low, and a manual harvest focused on acidity. In the cellar, Jean-Marc prefers fermentations in wooden cuves, a careful and judicious stirring of the lees, and a combination of oak and stainless-steel aging. The results are extraordinarily complex, terrior driven wines, with serious pedigree. Jean Marc’s wines are regarded as some of the most highly coveted in Burgundy.
