    (there's only one cuvee in 2012, as Roumier had just enough fruit from both sides of the appellation to fill a single large cuve ; he normally vinifies his |red soil| and |white soil| vines separately and then combines them): Very dark red-ruby color. Wild small red fruits, brown spices and musky earth on the nose; smells bigger than the Ruchottes! Concentrated, chewy and sweet on the palate, with a compelling thickness of texture to the captivating flavors of strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and blood orange. Offers a rare combination of tactile, 3-D texture and an impression of weightlessness. Extremely long on the aftertaste, with noble tannins buried under the wine's great fruit.

    A kaleidoscope of spices greets the senses in this dense, black cherry- and blackberry-flavored red. There's an underlying vegetal component, balanced by licorice-tinged sweet fruit and spice. Shows terrific length, with great energy and focus.

    Tasted blind at the annual |Burgfest| tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Bonnes Mares Grand Cru from Domaine Georges Roumier has a touch of reduction to get round first, though underneath are sophisticated red and black fruit, the oak nicely integrated though needing another couple of years to fully knit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, dense black fruit, quite saline in the mouth but nicely focused with a structured, introspective but extraordinarily long finish that will require three or four years to mellow. There is so much potential here - words written before I knew the identity of the grower.

  • 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.
