Georges Roumier, Chambolle Musigny, SHC

2010

Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

A Chambolle-Musigny of tension and precision, reflecting the fine, poor-soil, terroirs of the vine parcels (four out of the five cuvées that make up this blend are situated on Chambolle’s slopes.) Fine, vivid crushed redcurrant and red berry fruit flavours. Long, juicy and edgy, this is as vibrant as Chambolle gets.

Notes
Bright, deep red. Sappy aromas of raspberry, spices and minerals. Sweet, supple and lush, offering excellent volume for village wine. The wine's sappy quality gives it inner-mouth energy and early deliciousness. Christophe Roumier expressed the opinion in November that the 2012s don't have enough tannins to really shut down in the bottle; on the other hand, he reported seeing more pips in 2010 than in 2011, a year in which the phenolic ripeness came earlier here.

Georges Roumier

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.
