2019 Roulot Auxey-Duresses Rouge 1er Cru
Roulot's only premier cru bottling of red grapes, the Auxey is perfect for those who enjoy an ethereal, mineral-driven style of Pinot Noir. The nose presents a harmonious medley of dark berries and spice, while the palate echoes the taut, crystalline character of the domaine's white wines. A chalky core underpins this red that will drink beautifully for at least the next decade.
Roulot is widely considered one of the greatest producers in Meursault. The lesser-known (and equally delicious) reds are a real treat. Organically farmed and fermented this is a savory effort that displays restraint and elegance. Robust with notes of cassis, black olives, textured minerality and pomegranate, this is as classic a Red Burgundy as they come.
