    ($70) Good medium red. Dark raspberry, coffee and spicy oak on the nose; this wine's flamboyant ripeness almost came as a shock following the more reticent 2006s. Big, round, plush and ripe, with spicy dark raspberry and chocolate flavors and considerable density for village wine. Quite smooth and harmonious at the moment: Roumier volunteered that this is not as closed yet as he expected it would be.

    Deep ruby. A pretty and very high-toned nose features a beguiling mix of red and black berry fruit and hints of underbrush and spice that introduce rich, precise and wonderfully fresh flavors that display a mineral streak on the energetic and persistent finish. A very attractive villages and worth a look plus it should deliver 5 to 7 years of upside development.

    Pure and concentrated, with spicy cherry, blackberry and floral notes weaving through the dense texture. It's monolithic now, with fine potential. Good length. 250 cases imported.

    The 2005 Chambolle-Musigny - around two-thirds of it coming from old vines in high-elevation sites - offers high-toned cherry and citrus rind aromas along with pungent, musky florality. Bright cherry fruit, undertones of roast beef, and persistent inner-mouth florality lead into a refined, long, attractively lean finish, revealing abundant but sophisticated tannins that will help justify at least 3-5 years in the cellar. Given the performance of the Bourgogne, I suspect that this wine by contrast was suffering a bit of bottle shock.

    Very clean and fruity on the nose. Not quite as pure as Mugnier's village Chambolle. Very easy, soft and forward - easier to drink at this point. Relatively simple frank bitter cherry flavours. Very direct.

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.
