  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

    ($215) Deep red. Explosive spice on the nose, along with dark berries and peony. The palate offers brilliant definition and sap, but this baby is currently dominated by its great structure and firm tannic grip. The wine's finishing lift is extraordinary. A great wine in the making but in need of at least ten years of patience. |The spirit of the wine is Chambolle-Musigny,| says Roumier, |but its bones and flesh are Morey-Saint-Denis. It's like an athlete with brains.|

    Dense with ripe black fruit?plum, blackberry and black currant?along with mineral and spice, this starts out lush and silky. The tannins are there, but discreet and supportive, letting the fruit takes center stage. It shows great freshness and length, as the complex fruit washes over the palate. 110 cases imported.

    In contrast to the aromatic fireworks of the Amoureuses, here the nose is equally, indeed stunningly complex and deep but with a discreet and brooding character of mostly violets and blueberry notes against a backdrop of fresh earth that continues on the rich, intense and quite firmly structured big-boned flavors that are hugely long and built to age for decades. This will need at least 15 years to arrive at its majority but as this is one of the longest-lived wines in all of Burgundy, it will still be alive and well in 50 years.

    Roumier vinifies separately and later assembles the fruits of white chalk and red (iron-rich) parcels that inform his 2005 Bonnes Mares. At the time of my visit he had retained one pure barrel of each component as an investigation into terroir and the results were as fascinating as the blended wine is fascinatingly and profoundly beautiful. The ferrous lot (55% of the final assemblage) displays ripe blackberry and raspberry berries, along with (red soil-born) pungent smokiness, Chartreuse-like herbal and floral essences. A liqueur-like presentation of black fruits temporarily overshadows the mysterious (white rock-born) meld of chalky minerality and beef marrow that wells up gradually on a creamy palate with tannins of utmost refinement. The tension and energy are riveting - lending the wine a dynamic, fleet-of-foot impression for all of its manifestly huge extract - with incisive brightness of palate-staining fruit and vibrant minerality leading to a finish of sensational clarity and length. Even here, by the way, Roumier employs only around 40% new wood.

    Strong and sturdy with animal hints. Broad and in this case quite fruity too. Big boned rugby player of wine with quite a bit of alcohol. Notably solid.

  • 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.
