Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 92-93

Dark cherry and its pits and tart skin; black raspberry with its seeds; cumin and mace seem to be electrically charged in the Roumier 2008 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras, with musky floral, savory red meat juice, and crushed stone dimensions on a firm palate adding riveting complexity. There is a certain textural austerity and restraint of sheer ripeness here, but what a concentrated ball of energy we have, making for a finish of spine- as well as tongue-tingling length! Look for at least 12-15 years of stimulation from this.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

(vinified with 20% whole clusters): Bright, moderately saturated red. Complex nose melds raspberry, spices, flowers, minerals and a whiff of game. Juicy, precise and tightly coiled, youthfully energetic without being hard. This might be good now with some time in the decanter. Wonderfully fresh, pure, minerally wine with a persistent, lightly peppery finish. I like this style.

Burghound | Rating: 91

Here there is no reduction and the cool, airy and pure red pinot fruit and stone notes dissolve seamlessly into the equally mineral-driven, detailed and precise medium-bodied flavors that are at once seductive yet nervy with a silky mouth feel and really lovely focus on the tension-filled finish. Roumier always seems to succeed with this wine and the '08 version is no exception. I would give this 7 to 9 years in the cellar first.

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.
