Medium red. Ripe blackberry and cherry aromas, with deeper tones of underbrush, cured meat and resiny herbs. The lush, creamy palate offers brighter red berry notes and finishes supple and sweet, with broad, well-integrated tannins and excellent penetration and length. Provides an intriguing blend of red and dark berry flavors, with energy as well as depth.

Relatively light ruby colour. Round and lively though not intense (are all these 2002s suffering for being tasted immediately after the 2003s?). Real zest and direction. Transparency. Real burgundy qualities. Still quite a way to go… More complexity than most though pretty delicate. Real finesse.

About This Producer


Georges Roumier married his way into some of the best vineyard holdings in the Cote d'Or, back in 1924. He gained a wife from Chambolle and the vineyards as part of the dowry. Grand Cru blocks in Bonnes-Mares, Clos de Vougeot, Musigny, and Corton Charlemagne produce highly sought-after wines year after year. Christophe Roumier, Georges' son, has run the domaine since 1982, when he took over management of his family's 14.2 hectares of vines. He is regarded as one of the finest winemakers in the Cote de Nuit, one who strives to create authentic representations of each of his diverse plots.
