2006 Domaine Georges Roumier Chambolle-Musigny


The domaine was founded in 1924 by Georges Roumier, who began domaine bottling in 1945. He was succeeded in 1957 by his son Jean-Marie and now grandson Christophe, who joined his father in 1982 and took over completely in 1992. Most of the wines are rented (en fermage) from family members although Ruchottes Chambertin is held on a share cropping deal with an external proprietor, Michel Bonnefond. The wines are seductively fruity in their youth yet with excellent ageing potential.

The grapes are sorted in the vineyard, with a table de tri at the winery since 2003. They are mostly destemmed, albeit depending on vineyard and vintage, with a few more stems being used recently – then placed in wooden fermenters. The juice is given a cool soak at 15° then allowed to start naturally. The juice is punched down twice a day and temperature controlled so as not to exceed 32°C.

There is no great reliance on new wood in the maturation cellar, with 15-25% being used for village wines, 25-40% for premiers crus and no more than 50% for Bonnes Mares. In recent years Christophe has been searching for, and achieving, a greater sense of precision in his wines.

This is very muted on the nose – so different from Bussiere. Wild strawberry, sweet pea, a touch of orange-blossom and then with time it gradually unfurls. Very enticing but it needs aeration. The palate is very well balanced with pure raspberry, wild strawberry fruits, great sense of mineralite coming towards the finish that still has some unresolved new oak to embrace. Very focused towards the finish and great length. Excellent.
