A superstar in Burgundy, George Roumier is a name that every Burgundy lover should pay attention to. This domaine is neck and neck with some of the best names nowadays under the management by the talented and forward-thinking Christophe Roumiersince 1992. It owns some of the best sites in Chambolle Musigny as well as a monopole in Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru; and also owns extremely tiny plots of 2 terroirs that produce the most expensive wines in the world - Le Musigny and Les Amoureuses, in which a bottle of George Roumier Le Musigny 2010 is currently listed at HK$70,000 per bottle.
What makes George Roumier’s wine so distinctive? Christophe Roumier's efforts to make these wonderful wines start at the very beginning - the vineyard. He retains the vines of 50 years+ on average to get good concentration of the grapes, picks the grapes late to get full maturity of the fruits and only uses a few stems in fermentation only when necessary and benefits the wines. There is no absolute formula but merely based on Christophe Roumier’s own experience to make the feminine yet solid, perfumed and full of rich and dynamic red fruits Pinots that is so unique and hard to find in any other domaines in Chambolle Musigny.
Supply from George Roumier is always small, the domaine produces excellent wines from village to Grand Crus. For instance, Roumier Chambolle Musigny (village) sources from several plots and it’s not uncommon for Christophe to include declassified premier cru grapes into it; Chambolle Musigny Les Cras 1er Cru could be a very good replacement for the expensive Bonne Mares; and never overlook the family-owned monopole in Morey-St-Denis - Clos de la Buissiere 1er Cru which is a classic Morey-St-Denis that has stupendous potential that would offer immense pleasure with time.
