    ($77) Good deep red. Black cherry, mocha, sassafras and game on the rather wild nose. Less sweet and open than the Chambolle villages but with very good chewy depth to the flavors of dark plum and chocolate. A bit tight and youthfully angular, and much less easy to taste today than the village wine. This needs a good four or five years of cellaring.

    A leaner, more angular style, with cherry, black currant and briar aromas and flavors. Firm and sinewy, with a chewy component to the lingering tannins. Dry finish.

    Great freshness and life. Lots of griottes-cherry flavours plus some autumnal undergrowth. Should open up nicely with lovely fine tannins. This will be bottled relatively late.

    Like the rest of the wines here at the time I tasted, Roumier's 2005 Morey St. Denis Clos de la Bussiere had been sulfured and racked in autumn after a very late malo and was in barrel awaiting imminent assemblage in tank for (unfiltered) bottling. It was slightly reduced but responded well to a good shaking, displaying subtle black fruits, high-toned almond and maraschino, roasted meatiness, resin, and forest floor notes on the nose. It fills the mouth with roasted meat richness, bitter-sweet black fruits, high-toned distilled fruit esters, and finishes with solidity, grip, and savory saltiness.

  • 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.
