  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    A gorgeous red Burgundy, ripe yet firm, playing the field of Pinot Noir complexity. It has smoke, game, mineral and black fruit character, a thick texture and well-integrated tannins. Bravo.

    Christophe Roumier fashioned some seriously impressive '96s and this has finally begun to open on the spicy, pure, airy and elegant nose while displaying really lovely aromatic complexity that continues on the relatively round sappy and sweet flavors that unlike many '96s, possesses excellent acid/fruit/tannin balance on the gorgeously persistent finish. While one can discern some initial development, this is still a baby and will definitely be a long-distance runner so if you own it, additional patience is definitely required.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

    Displaying a dark ruby color and a fabulous nose of candied red fruits and cookie dough, this wine is an immensely rich, multi-dimensional masterpiece. This broad-shouldered, ample, oily-textured, masculine, structured, and medium-to-full-bodied wine is formidably concentrated and complex. Highly-focused blackberries, violets, lilies, stones, earth, and cassis flavors are intermingled with grilled and spiced new oak. Its prodigiously long finish is expansive, rendering its copious and supple tannins invisible

    Excellent red-ruby color. Multifaceted nose hints at dried rose, raspberry, cherry, white pepper and minerals. Dense and thick in the mouth; conveys an impression of lushness in spite of its strong backbone and firm acidity. Finishes with terrific grip and length, with tannins buffered by fruit. This will develop in bottle for many years but has the early balance to give pleasure now.

  • Self | Rating: 94

    Vertical Tasting of 18 Roumier Bonnes Mares from Steven Tanzers Cellar with Steve, sponsored by Acker Merrill at Toqueville. The 96 was very closed, but very structured with enough Tannins to put this away for another 5 years

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.
