The domaine of Jean-Marc Roulot is one of the most iconic in Meursault with the top bottlings some of the most sought after in the appellation. This is his Aligoté from two parcels in Meursault, one 50 years old and the other 70 years old, vinified entirely in stainless steel.

A taut and linear expression with a restrained nose of lime zest, nougat and light spice. It’s all about controlled power on the palate with refined pastry and citrus flavours, searing lemon acidity and a steely mineral edge.

The Domaine Roulot, originally founded in 1830 by Guillaume Roulot, has enjoyed much fame along the years but its international reputation started during the 1950s, when another member of the family, Guy Roulot (Jean-Marc’s father), progressively turned this 12 hectares vineyard of the Cote de Beaune into one of Meursault’s crown jewels. His son Jean-Marc continues the legacy since 1989, seven years after Guy’s passing.

Professional actor since 1983, with more than 50 movies under his belt, Jean-Marc Roulot was not initially destined to follow in his father’s footsteps but, as it turned out, he has become quite the winemaker himself. Since his very first day in this new career, he decided to switch the entire estate to organic viticulture, banning pesticides and choosing to plow by hand only (he received the Demeter label in 2010).

Jean-Marc Roulot is now seen as one of the masters of winemaking in Burgundy. With a minutiae that borders on obsession, he manages to transcend Chardonay and turn it into pure and dynamic wines, whose freshness cannot be matched. For him, grapes need to be picked at just the right time: not too early, not too late. Beyond the terroir, he is looking to hone his personal style, to “put tension back inside the wine bottle”.
