Here there is no reduction and the cool, airy and pure red pinot fruit and stone notes dissolve seamlessly into the equally mineral-driven, detailed and precise medium-bodied flavors that are at once seductive yet nervy with a silky mouth feel and really lovely focus on the tension-filled finish. Roumier always seems to succeed with this wine and the '08 version is no exception. I would give this 7 to 9 years in the cellar first.

(vinified with 20% whole clusters): Bright, moderately saturated red. Complex nose melds raspberry, spices, flowers, minerals and a whiff of game. Juicy, precise and tightly coiled, youthfully energetic without being hard. This might be good now with some time in the decanter. Wonderfully fresh, pure, minerally wine with a persistent, lightly peppery finish. I like this style.

Dark cherry and its pits and tart skin; black raspberry with its seeds; cumin and mace seem to be electrically charged in the Roumier 2008 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras, with musky floral, savory red meat juice, and crushed stone dimensions on a firm palate adding riveting complexity. There is a certain textural austerity and restraint of sheer ripeness here, but what a concentrated ball of energy we have, making for a finish of spine- as well as tongue-tingling length! Look for at least 12-15 years of stimulation from this.
