TN: 2015 Domaine Roulot Bourgogne Blanc

A whiff of struck match on the nose, with green apple and peach skin. On the palate this is electric, despite the vintage -- tons of zingy acidity, lemon, and a hint of oak. Very much a mini-Meursault. As they say, Roulot is Roulot.

Charles Lachaux's first vintage. A very muscular Vosne. Lots of wood and dark fruit. Grippy. This integrated after a few hours but remained very concentrated. I opened this far too soon, it needs at least another 5 years. Have some 2012 Chaumes that I'll try not to touch for at least a decade.
