Meursault 1er Cru Boucheres, 2012, Domaine Roulot
Note: from a 1.37 ha parcel
A gorgeous, elegant and pure nose offers up aromas of white flowers, citrus rind, pear, apple and discreet mineral notes. The ultra-refined and intense middle weight flavors possess excellent delineation before culminating in a relatively dry, linear and focused finish that displays real drive.
This strikingly pretty and well-balanced effort is an exercise in harmony and finesse with a delicate mouth feel.
While this will probably be approachable after only 5 to 7 years, it should be capable of repaying up to a decade of cellar time.
