Producer note: Jean-Marc Roulot described the 2015 vintage as "one that was markedly hot and dry but there wasn't really any appreciable hydric stress because the vines received just enough rain when they most needed it. In a way, the month of June saved us because we had in total around 60 mm of rain which was enough to see the vines through a bone dry July. There wasn't much disease pressure other than some early season oidium and that wasn't a problem either provided that you treated early enough. As usual, I chose to begin picking earlier than most, which is to say on the 27th of August, because I saw no reason to wait further as I was very concerned that with the intense heat the fruit was going to suffer an irreversible drop in acidity. The fruit was happily completely spotless and ripe, in fact it was absolutely delicious to eat! The heat though had thickened the skins to the point that it wasn't easy to press but even so we realized almost normal yields. Despite having picked early I was afraid that we were going to make another 2003 but I was quite surprised to find that the 2015s do not resemble that vintage at all. To be sure, the '15s are ripe but they have much different aromatic profiles than the '03s and much better acidities as well." I found Roulot to have made excellent 2015s, indeed notably better than what I found generally elsewhere. Note that the iconic Roulot wine "Les Tessons, Clos du Mon Plaisir" has changed its name to "A Mon Plaisir - Clos du Haut Tesson".
Tasting note: A ripe, fresh and attractively layered nose combines notes of hazelnut, acacia blossom and lightly spiced pear. There is more volume and richness if less minerality to the delicious, round and sappy flavors that possess good finishing punch and persistence.
