2018 Domaine Roulot 'Meix Chavaux' Meursault
Winemaker Notes: Aromatics of white peach, citrus and melon. A rich, unctuous mouthfeel gives way to a lengthy finish showcasing crisp acidity and chalky minerality.
Decanter - "Les Meix Chavaux is one of the best village sites in Meursault, frequently making wines that could be mistaken for a Premier Cru in a blind tasting. Jean-Marc Roulot makes his wine from four parcels, all in the upper part of the vineyard, and has produced an intense, iodine and oyster shell-scented white with subtle wood and considerable underlying concentration. Drinking Window 2021 - 2030."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Meursault Meix Chavaux has turned out very nicely in bottle, offering up aromas of citrus oil, crisp green orchard fruit, pastry cream and almond paste, complemented by hints of clear honey, that haven't changed much since I last encountered the wine 12 months ago. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, its elegantly textural attack segues into a racy, acid-driven mid-palate and a penetrating, mineral finish."
Burghound - "A subtle but not invisible background application of oak frames a relatively similar nose though here the floral component is more prominent. There is a caressing mouthfeel to the lightly mineral-inflected flavors that culminate in a slightly drier, clean and bright finish that displays lovely depth. This is an especially good example of the vineyard as it has more personality, and in particular better complexity, than I typically find. *Burghound Outstanding!*"
