Domaine Roulot was founded in 1830 by Guillaume Roulot near the village of Meursault in the Côte de Beaune. The Meursault appellation is dominated by Chardonnay and is known for its high-quality dry white wines from village and premier cru vineyards, despite having no grand cru sites.
Domaine Roulot established itself in the upper echelon of white Burgundy producers under the late Guy Roulot. Guy was one of the first producers of the region to bottle single vineyards separately, including village lieux-dits. He died in 1982 and his son Jean-Marc took over in 1989, farming the vineyards organically.
