Jasper Morris – 88-91
The blend includes Narvaux , young vines of Luchets, Clos de la Baronne, Crotots, Gruyaches and for the first time Sous Lavelle. Pale in colour with a lime tint. This Meursault starts with a tightly knit if restrained nose, before there erupts an explosion of power, with heat and some liquorice notes. There is still good length, but the heat takes the foreground.
Decanter – 92
This village Meursault is a blend of different plots, including half of the Clos de la Baronne, acquired from René Manuel in 2011, along with fruit from Gruyaches and Crotot. The bunches are lightly crushed prior to settling and fermentation in cask, with a modest proportion of new wood, and the result is classic Roulot, with a bright, up front, lemony fruit, a strong mineral component and breadth on the palate that opens with time in the glass.
Burghound – 89-91
A very Meursault-like nose consists of grilled hazelnut, pear and apple compote with hints of acacia blossom. There is excellent underlying tension to the delicious middle weight flavors that possess better depth and persistence on the more refined finale. This is a quality villages.
