2010 Domaine Roulot Meursault "Les Tessons Clos de Mon Plaisir"

SKU #1251285 93 points 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)  (8/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 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)  (9/2012)

 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)  (6/2013)

 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.

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:


- The town of Meursault is a prosperous village, with a Gothic town hall and narrow winding streets. It produces a small amount of red wine, but is justly famous for its whites. Although it has no Grand Cru vineyards, its Premiers Crus are justly famous, particularly Charmes, Poruzots, Perrières and Genevrières. A good Meursault has concentration, grip and backbone, in addition to its soft and rich fruit.
