Whilst Jean-Marc Roulot`s white wines tend to get most of the spotlight, his family has been making spirits in Meursault since 1866. “Distillers from father to son, we continue to be, to this day, owners of a family still with which we produce Marc and Fine Bourgogne,” says Jean-Marc. “I wanted to develop this activity by extending the distillation to fruit brandies and return to a work that my father, Guy Roulot, had experimented with long before me.”
The Bergeron apricots for this liqueur come from the Rhône valley orchards of Jean-Louis Chave. They were pitted and allowed to infuse in a neutral spirit over the course of a few months. The resulting infusion is almost caramel in colour, the nose having delicate aromas of perfectly ripe, fragrant apricots, with spice. The palate is juicy and intense with flavours of preserved apricots, the finish being long, fine and dry.
