    ($60) Deep red-ruby color. Aromas of raspberry, bitter chocolate and coffee. Sweet, lush and concentrated, with a compelling balance of sucrosity and bright acidity. Really packed with fruit. A long, serious premier cru with terrific thrust.

    Lovely complex nose with so many layers. Unlike the Dujacs there are no problems here with this 1999, even if we have passed into another stage of evolution from the 21st century vintages. Bravo again! Satin smooth at first and then masses of fine tannins. Should last for a very long time. Quite firm really, especially underneath, but the ripeness of fruit on the front palate distracts from this.

    The 1999 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras is medium to dark ruby-colored and has blackberry and currant aromas. This fresh, satin-textured, and medium-bodied wine is loaded with an assortment of dark fruits and spices. It is well-made and possesses loads of sweet ripe tannin. Drink it over the next 7 years.

    This is a clear notch up in quality with explosive black cherry fruits and a very intense inner core of sappy, dense and marvelously long pinot essence. Quintessential Chambolle with its finesse and delicacy but this is most assuredly not light and it finishes quite firmly and with solid minerality.

    Underlying sweet-fruit character brings an extra dimension to this balanced, well-made, dark-colored and elegant red Burgundy. Inviting terroir, with lovely black fruit. Supple and ripe tannins, with a fresh and succulent finish. 690 cases made.

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.
