    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Georges Roumier, Morey St Denis, Clos de la Bussière, 1er Cru, 2010

    Crunchy fresh fruit with considerably more depth than the Chambolle Villages, a different profile too; dark berry fruits, flavours of bramble, loganberry, bilberry and raspberry with touches of earth and mineral. Excellent, gripping and sturdy tannins yet with a lifting, expansive finish.

    ABV:
    13%
    90/100
    Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
    Bright, dark red-ruby. Dark berry aromas are complicated by musky earthy nuances. Concentrated, energetic wine with a chewy, tactile mouthfeel to its dark fruit flavors; fresh acidity gives it excellent inner-mouth tension. Finishes with firm but ripe tannins and building length. Very successful, solidly structured wine.

    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.
