2011 Domaine Roulot Meursault "Les Vireuils"
Allen Meadows - Burghound
here is enough reduction to mask the components of the nose though there is very good freshness and underlying tension to the agreeably textured and delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess really lovely precision on the clean, dry and ultra-pure finish where a touch of minerality appears. A villages of finesse.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Meursault Vireuils has a very perfumed bouquet with hints of lemon curd, apricot and passion fruit that is beautifully defined. The palate is well-balanced: fine minerality on the entry with a crisp, slightly leesy finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is a lovely, complete Meursault. Drink now-2018. (NM)
Pure like spring water, this white features delineated lemon, apple, stone and white flower aromas and flavors. Shows fine cut and length, with a vivid finish that bodes well for aging. Best from 2016 through 2024. (BS)
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Pale, bright, green-tinged yellow. Pure, scented nose combines lemon, vanilla, white truffle and acacia flower. Juicy and vibrant but not at all hard, with ripe acidity framing the flavors of lemon, lime and white flowers. This suave, dry wine finishes with lovely floral length and lift, and no phenolic character. Leaves the mouth feeling refreshed. (ST)
Bright lime, lemon, mint and saline notes jump from the glass in the 2011 Meursault Les Vireuils. The style is crisp, nuanced and beautifully delineated. Floral notes add further brightness on the finish. This is a beautiful example of Vireuils. (AG)
