The Meix Chavaux from Roulot is a very impressive village wine. The bouquet is somewhat closed with quite a lot of SO2 present in the nose. After decanting and some time in the glass it gradually reveal more crisp minerality, a lovely yellow fruit spized with citrus notes and gunpowder. On the palate very focused and pure chardonnay flavors, fine midpalate concentration and length. The acidity is very crisp and zappy – very transparent with a good expression of terroir. Need some time to show the full potential, and at least 10 years before it’s fully matured. A very intense village wine … Bravo!
