Wine of the Day

2010RoulotRouge2010 Domaine Roulot, Monthelie AC, Red Burgundy.
Here is a lovely and complex Burgundy that shows refined winemaking and classic charms with a deep ruby color, earthy edginess and silky texture. The nose starts with muted red fruits, truffle, game and forest floor mulch notes which blow off in minutes to reveal floral and mineral essences plus a gathering of the fruit. Roulot’s 2010 Monthelie opens up to savory currants, plum and raspberry while a core of tangy cherry flows throughout with tea spice, dusty stones and a blast of juicy acidy. The wine really changes in the glass and feels the mouth and leaves a long creamy aftertaste with a touch of saline and strawberry. Roulot, as most know is one of the top White Burgundy winemakers crafting uber collectable Meursault with amazing verve and class, but I really enjoy his artisan touch with his Monthelie Bourgogne Rouge and highly recommend taking a bit of time searching this gem out.
