    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Georges Roumier, Chambolle Musigny, Aux Combottes, 1er Cru, 2009

    Richer, smoother and more immediately seductive than the Morey, with a lovely brightness to it nonetheless, ripe red berry, mulberry and Victoria plum fruit, floral on the finish with rich notes of griotte and kirsch.

    ABV:
    13%
    93/100

    The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Combottes presents an intriguing and inviting mélange of dark red cherries, mint, licorice and spices. There is wonderful depth to the fruit as the wine continues to open up in the glass. This is a decidedly dark, powerful style of Chambolle, but it works, and quite beautifully, too. It will be interesting to see the direction the Combottes takes over the coming years.

    Georges Roumier

    The Domaine was estalished by Georges Roumier in 1924, who went on to instigate the practice of domaine bottling his family’s wines in 1945. Today the Domaine has been expanded to 11.8 hectares over 9 appellations and is run by Georges Roumier’s Grandson, Christophe. The wines are made as naturally as possible, vines are hand-tended, a large proportion of fermentations are whole bunch (up to 50%), the percentages varying a little depending on cuvée and vintage, and ageing is in barriques for as long as possible, usually 16 to 18 months, to allow for bottling without filtration. 15-25% new oak is used for the village appellations whilst 40-50% is used for the 1ers and Grand Crus. The result is intense, lively, red Burgundy that demand time and patience.
