2010 Domaine Roulot Meursault "Les Tessons Clos de Mon Plaisir"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Meursault Les Tessons Clos de Mon Plaisir is another vivid, totally compelling white. The aromas and flavors seem to explode from the glass. Layers of minerality provide the backbone as this subtle, gracious wine seems to waft from the glass. What is most impressive about the Tessons is the richness Roulot has achieved while avoiding any sense of heaviness. Anticipated maturity: 2013+. (AG)

Very reticent nose dominated by citrus peel and stony minerality. Tightly wound and high-pitched, with penetrating acidity giving a steely spine to the mid-palate. Offers a compelling combination of silky texture and piquant energy. A great village wine with a knockout rising finish that's almost painful today. I would not be at all surprised if this wine eventually merited an even higher score. (ST)
The 2010 Meursault Tessons, Clos de Mon Plaisir from Jean-Marc Roulot is flat out dazzling. Bright, floral and beautifully delineated, the 2010 pairs with our dishes perfectly. Like all truly great wines, the Tessons has more than enough class to be delicious on its own. I especially admire the way the Tessons achieves both depth and weightlessness. Underlying beams of minerality add energy and a gorgeous element of focus. Although the 2010 is far too young to fully appreciate, it is striking. (AG)

When I last reviewed this wine from bottle in Issue 51 (see herein) I noted that it seemed very odd and entirely inconsistent with what I had seen from barrel; even Jean-Marc Roulot was at a loss to explain the curious showing. This most recent bottle however was, happily, entirely different an altogether lovely in every respect, especially on the elegant and well-layered floral, honeysuckle and citrus-suffused nose. There is good richness and punch to the utterly delicious and beautifully complex middle weight flavors that possess an attractive bead of minerality on the impressively long finish. This is a flat out terrific villages level wine, indeed it is rare to find this kind of quality. Note that while should be able to reward a few more years of cellaring, it is already drinking so well that I'm not inclined to suggest holding it any long though I underscore that it will easily hold for years.
