Description

Laurent Roumier is the grandson of the legendary Georges Roumier and his holdings originate from that grand old estate with more recent additions of 6 hectares in the Hautes Cotes de Nuits being purchased in the 1990s and further purchases in Chambolle Musigny.

His father Alain was the cellar master for Comte de Vogue for nearly 3 decades before taking his portion of the family vineyards to farm for his own family. The cellars are almost next door to Georges Roumier at the back of the village in the rue de Vergy (which perhaps could be called the 'rue des Roumiers' as the various branches of the family seem to occupy most of the lane).

Wines here appear stylistically very similar to those of Georges with even the same barrels and oak used as his cousins though one notable difference is that Laurent mostly de-stems giving wines that show an excellent depth of colour and which are more immediately perfumed and accessible in their youth while still having ample depth and structure to age classically.

In recent vintages, Laurent’s son is now working with him lending not only another set of hands but fresh perspectives and bringing new energy together with some more investments including extensions to the cellar and renewal to some of the winemaking areas. The relatively modern cellar enables the wine to be moved with ease by gravity into barrel following ferments.

Tasting Profile

Palate
Just 0.14 ha of vines planted in 1938 produce 3-4 barrels of this wine in a good year. This holding was inherited from the Georges Roumier estate and is situated in the heart of this Grand cru site with these vines located between the holdings of de Vogue and Freddie Mugnier. Shows great depth of colour with beautiful fine aromas of rose petals, all perfume, and finesse, yet very deep and intense on the palate with remarkable persistence and power. A stunning Grand cru of a real breed that shows remarkable intensity and persistence balanced with finesse and restraint. This will age and evolve effortlessly for decades in a very cool cellar. This wine sits comfortably among the top Grand Cru and shows how great the top Chambolle sites can be. No more than 900 bottles or a maximum of 3 barrels produced in a good vintage.
