Awesome stuff from Redbyrd, as always. — 22 days ago
From the always lovely lieu-dit Meix Chavaux. There is a ripe opulence that is seamlessly balanced by signature Roulot kinetic energy and drive. Ripe orchard fruit, lemon verbena, flinty minerals, saline and matchstick reduction that blows off with a sufficient decant. There is great cut and delineation even in the ripe vintage. But we should expect nothing less from the great Jean Marc Roulot. Finishes long and intense strutting its mineral backbone and impressive focus. — 7 days ago
My favourite Chenin Blanc. Fresh, orchard, not too dry. Delicious. — a month ago
Gorgeous floral scents and white orchard fruit, the nose keeps giving with air and keeps opening up. A palate with so much class, finesse and elegance, fine and fresh, pure fruit, with a nicely balanced acidity, great length for this superb complete and classy wine.
Nez floral et de fruits blancs entre autres, un nez qui ne cesse de se complexifier et s’épanouir. Une bouche avec beaucoup de classe, finesse et élégance, un fruité très pur, délicieux sur une acidité bien dosée, quelle longueur, superbe vin complet d’une grande classe. 93-94

Nose has honey, honey, honey, warmed honey, honeycomb, white flowers, waxy green pear, waxy limestone, orange blossom, candied pineapple, bruised yellow apple, over-ripe green apple with excessive tree hang, resinous oak and (light) green banana peel.
Palate has honey glazed orange peel, dried lime zest, candle wax, honey drizzle over candied pineapple, lime wedge, dry red clay, lemon poundcake and chamomile tea, but the level of acidity is amazing, like lime orchard honey! WOW! Finish runs 2m+ and lingers longer.
