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.

Tasting Notes

89-92 Points Allen Meadows
An exuberantly fresh nose of various dark berries that include cassis along with floral and soft spice wisps. There is very good mid-palate density to the finer and more intense medium weight flavors that flash plenty of minerality on the bitter cherry pit-inflected finale. This too is a very fine effort and particularly for a villages level wine.

89-91+ Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Roumier’s 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Village exhibits aromas of cherries, raspberries, rose petals and rich, loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and concentrated, with rich, powdery tannins and fine depth at the core, it’s serious and structured, with a long, expansive finish.
