Bright yellow. Reduced aromas of minerals and smoke. Then large-scaled and rich in the mouth, with a softer impression to its peach and orange flavors than the Tillets. A bit less shape and cut here, but this big boy is solid and serious Meursault with premier cru weight and texture. Finishes with sneaky persistence.

Roulot’s 2007 Meursault Tesson Clos de Mon Plaisir represents his monopole in an impressive light, combining luscious lime and grapefruit with roasted pumpkin and brown spices; exhibiting satiny texture and glycerin richness along with brightness; and finishing with impressive persistence incorporating an underlying stoniness. A musky floral and citrus oil aura hangs over the entire, elegant performance here. This should be well worth following for at least 6-8 years.
