LEDOMDUVIN: SHARING KNOWLEDGE AND PASSION FOR WINE SINCE 1991 -
Tasting everything from everywhere, from the multimillion-dollar Chateaux to that small, unknown cellar ending a dirt path surrounded by vineyards... a wine blog to enjoy till the last drop!
Domaine Roulot Meursault 1er Cru "Clos des Bouchères" Monopole 2017
Not my first bottle in the last 3 months, and surely many more to come. I love this wine. Balanced, mineral, racy, great acidity, complex, rich, yet not heavy, elegant and refined, rather feminine. A little restraint, I like to open it about 30 minutes before serving + a quick decanting just before serving to give a boost.
Beautiful expression of bright red cherry aromas mingling with mineral, earth, spice. Razor sharp acidity, on the light side, yet focus, structured and textured. Need some air to really express itself, open it about 1 hour before serving.
Beautiful wine, love it. Elegant, refined, feminine, bright, crisp, complex and seductive. So youthful, this wine could easily age gracefully for another 10 to 15 years. The secret behind it, is the acidity. As I like to say, warm vintages in Bordeaux give ripeness, opulence and richness, while cooler vintages bring the necessary acidity and tannins to allow the wine to keep its youthful character and live through time. For example, some 1982 Bordeaux reached their peak already, while some 1983, like this one, will continue to live and evolve for a little while longer.
