Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

Medium red. Ripe blackberry and cherry aromas, with deeper tones of underbrush, cured meat and resiny herbs. The lush, creamy palate offers brighter red berry notes and finishes supple and sweet, with broad, well-integrated tannins and excellent penetration and length. Provides an intriguing blend of red and dark berry flavors, with energy as well as depth.

Burghound | Rating: 91

(from a 1.75 ha parcel of vines averaging 35 to 40 years of age) Tight and reserved black and red cherry and plum aromas with sweet, intense, exceptionally pretty flavors that just ooze extract of pinot and completely coat the mouth. There is a lovely inner mouth perfume and this is utterly delicious if perhaps not quite as beautifully delineated as its 2001 counterpart. It is however extraordinarily well balanced and I very much like this with its mineral-infused and linear finish.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 89-90

The glorious aromas of the 2002 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras reveal black cherries, plums, violets, stones, and raspberries. Satin-textured and ample, it is a broad, fleshy, sweet effort packed with plummy cherry flavors.

Relatively light ruby colour. Round and lively though not intense (are all these 2002s suffering for being tasted immediately after the 2003s?). Real zest and direction. Transparency. Real burgundy qualities. Still quite a way to go… More complexity than most though pretty delicate. Real finesse.

About This Producer

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
