2016 Domaine Roulot Meursault "Vireuils" (Previously $400)

SKU #1423689 91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The Vireuils is superb in this challenging year, opening in the glass with notes of pear, peach, white flowers and crème pâtissière. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, silky and texturally refined, with nice concentration and a precise, gently grippy finish. The balance here is excellent. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035. (WK) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This had just been racked and was aromatically unreadable. Here too the palate impression of the middle weight flavors is energetic while once again offering a step up in refinement along with more minerality if perhaps not quite the same richness on the youthfully austere bitter-lemon inflected finish. In its current condition this is a bit awkward but the underlying material is such that I am confident that it will come together well. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (6/2018)

90 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2016 Vireuils is a very pretty wine, but this is one of the botltings that seemed very forward in personality at this point in its evolution. The nose offers up a stylish blend of pear, apple, hazelnuts, chalky soil tones, a touch of vanillin oak and a gentle topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full and complex, with a good core, fine focus and balance, sound, framing acids and a sneaky long, wide open finish. (Drink between 2018-2030) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Floral and chalky on the nose. Racy and with a real grip on the palate. Savoureux. Lots there. Good body. 17/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

Vinous

Outer quote mark Pale, bright yellow. Distinctly more soil-driven than the basic village Meursault, with its apple and spice flavors lifted by a calcaire element. A step up in intensity and spicy concentration as well, with apple and spice flavors framed by ripe acidity and enlivened by mineral verve. With less frost here, the estate made a bit more than 30 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine comes across as more energetic than the basic village bottling. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

K&L Notes

92 points Jasper Morris (MW): "Fine bright colour. The nose is backward, but offers a touch of steel though. The palate displays very good concentration, with a nice touch of youthful bitterness, length and balance. Closed at the moment, but the potential is there." (01/2018)
