Domaine Roulot (Meursault) -- 2014s Tasted from Tank Samples

Harvesting started on 10 September. Alas, the hail of 28 June caused the harvest to be about 50% of normal. Alcohols are about the same as 2012 and 2013. Total acidities resemble those of 2013 but the pHs are higher than in both 2012 and 2013. Over the summer, the wines went into stainless steel tanks, where they await bottling.

2014 is a great vintage, but Roulot is a great producer and so produces top-quality wines each vintage. Still, at the best appellations, these are very special wines. (Continue reading here.)
