The 2014 Meursault Les Tillets has that wonderful mineral bite on the nose: cold granite, sea cave and with just a cheeky hint of praline in the background. The palate is very well balanced, with a piercing thread of acidity that fans out with hints of dried honey. Orange peel, mandarin and dried quince are on the long finish. This is one of the finest wines that Jean-Marc Roulot has produced from this vineyard. Tasted February 2017.
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2032

East facing and a bit higher and further south than Luchets. He admits it is same price as Virieuls but should be more. Thrilling. Exciting. So thrilling and tense. Formidable.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028

Roulot has nearly a half-hectare in Tillets, at the top of the slope in very thin soils. The grapes are allowed to ripen fully and then crushed lightly prior to pressing. After fermentation the wines age a year in cask (20% new), are blended and then allowed another six months in tank, the result being fresh and clean, with a bright, lemony fruit edged with floral aromas. The texture is lively, but does not lack substance.
