"Jean-Marc Roulot has been successful in fine-tuning the domaine’s stand-out style over the last three decades."
The soils of the Côte de Beaune are covered with limestone scree coming from the top of the hill, red silts deposited in the glacial era, and rocks resulting from the alteration of the underlying geological strata. Brown limestone and stony soils characterise the southern part of the Côte d'Or. At the top of slope, the soils are lean, very limestone, they enrich themselves in clay going down. There are three different hillsides: those of the Corton mountain, those of the Côte des Blancs and those of Chassagne, Santenay and Maranges.
History / Ethos
Domaine Roulot, located in the Meursault appellation, dates back to the end of the 18th century. In the 1970s, Guy Roulot was known as the legendary producer of some of the finest Meursault. In the mid 80s, Jean-Marc Roulot had to give up his acting career to take over the family estate. Since then, Jean-Marc has steadily raised up the quality of the wines and has brought even more notice to the already great reputation of the domain. Domaine Roulot's white wines are among the most sought after wines. The estate also gained international recognition for mastering and enhancing the "lieux-dits" like Meursault "Les Tillets" to the highest level.
