    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Georges Roumier, Chambolle Musigny, 2008

    A brilliant, shimmering crystal clear red colour, intense bursting vivid flavours of red cherry, raspberry and redcurrant, crisp, precise but expansive with good concentration of flavour and richness.

    Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
    Good medium red. Pungent aromas of red berries, spices and underbrush, lifted by a floral nuance. Precise and juicy in the mouth, with lovely lift and strong floral character to the strawberry and raspberry flavors. Finishes with bright acidity and lovely length. Quite accessible today: Roumier believes the 2008s will never totally shut down.

    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.
