A model of total elegance, the 2010 Meursault Les Luchets wraps around the palate with rich, sensual fruit. The Luchets is a better-balanced, more harmonious wine than the Vireuils, The style is a bit juicier, but it is the wine’s pure textural finesse that stands out most. An effortless, gracious finish rounds things out in this stylish, totally delicious Meursault. A very slight hint of botrytis lingers in the empty glass. Anticipated maturity: 2013+. ||(Not yet released)||Jean-Marc Roulot commented that 2010 was easy in the vineyard but not so simple in the cellar, mostly because of very long malolactic fermentations that did not finish until the following August! The harvest started on September 17 and the wines came in with 12.8 -13.5 natural alcohols, which is at the higher end of the range for the domaine. Because of the lengthy malos, the 2010s were bottled a little later than normal. The 2010s are quite representative of the year in that they have considerable richness and at the same time high acidities. They are remarkably vivid, expressive to site and flat-out gorgeous. Readers will notice a new wine in 2010, the Auxey-Duresses, and can look forward to a new Clos de la Baronne and Clos des Boucheres with the 2011 vintage. Roulot fans will also want to be on the look out for Jean-Marc Roulot’s new line of eau de vies, an old family tradition that goes back many generations. The Framboise is one of the most pure expressions of fruit I have ever tasted, while the Abricot, made from Gerard and Jean-Louis Chave’s organically grown apricots in St. Joseph, is a bit more honeyed and liqueur-like.Unfortunately, my bottle of the Poire eau de vie broke, but I hope to be able to taste it soon. eRobertParker.com.August, 2012
