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.
