Lot #509. Domaine Roulot Meursault Charmes 2012

Description: Consists of 4 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 95 WA.
"From vines planted way back in 1942, the 2012 Meursault 1er Cru Charmes has a very harmonious, intense bouquet with citrus lemon, fennel, mint and orange zest that are all beautifully defined. The palate is vibrant and tense on the entry, a shard of orange peel that is really penetrating from start to finish. Extremely focused but quite flamboyant, this has everything you could ask for in a Meursault Charmes. This is simply fabulous . . . . On the subject of the 2012 vintage, he opined: 'The wines are more concentrated than 2011' . . . . As one would expect – a set of exemplary wines from Jean-Marc: detailed, tense, terroir-driven and intellectual right down to the Bourgogne Blanc. Prices have risen steeply in recent years, but that is inescapable when you become the hottest ticket in Meursault after Coche-Dury." Wine Advocate #215, Oct 2014
Notes: 1 nicked and 3 very lightly scuffed labels.
