Lovely complex nose of clove and hazelnut with fresh acids. Quite elegant on the palate which shows a lot of maturity with flavors of hazelnuts and lemon oil. There is good acidity and the finish is ripe with good intensity and some complex notes of clove and butterscotch. Very good but not my favorite of his delicious '04's.
in a perfect place. balanced and waxy with vibrant lemon and apple with this dense concentration of fruit that just sinks into the palate. Just the right amount of acidity to give it lift as it's showing the softness of it's 8 year age but still enough vibrancy to know it's going to go awhile.

(Roulot Meursault Tessons, Mon Plaisir) We started with a 2004 Roulot Meursault Tessons, Mon Plaisir, which was clean, buttery and smoky in that signature Roulot way. The more I drink ’04 whites, the more hard-pressed I am to consider a better white Burgundy vintage so far this century. The Roulot was absolutely delicious, young yet approachable, decadent yet elegant, long and refined, bristling with minerals and a just-right kiss of wood. Its smoky flavor lingered, and this bottle wasn’t around long.
(Roulot Meursault "Tessons") Amazing integration of oak on the nose with great salinity, minerality, green apple fruit, iodine and hazelnuts. Kept opening and opening. Palate at first was fat on the attack and acidic and angular on the finish. Soon though it started to form into a seamless white burg though with lots of energy and precision. Every sip and smell of this wine was a showstopper. I cannot remember the last white burg I had that was this good. Restores my faith.
