Reviews 91-93 points Wine Advocate "The 2010 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras comes across as delicate and finely knit in this vintage. The hard, firm tannins that are at times present are nowhere to be found. A beautifully expressive, knock-out bouquet melds into a finely knit fabric of red berries. The tannins feel like satin on the caressing finish. (AG)" 93 points Burghound "An ultra-fresh, cool, airy and admirably pure nose features crystal clear and transparent red pinot fruit and essence of stone. This is a bit firmer than the Combottes with even more evident minerality on the delicious, focused and beautifully well-delineated flavors that terminate in a precise, long, linear and palate staining finish.

Christophe Roumier’s modest tendencies might fight to keep him under the radar, but the exquisite lineup of his premier and grand crus from his family domaine, Domaine George Roumier, make him a darling of sommeliers and collectors alike. The Domaine's top fruit comes from the finest terriors in Chambolle Musigny - Le Musigny, Les Amoureuses, and Bonnes Mares. Additionally, there are three parcels farmed en métayage - Echezeaux, Ruchottes, and Charmes Chambertin. Despite severe pruning in the vineyards to keep his yields low, his finished wines exhibit wonderful succulence and concentration, all with focus and restraint.
After the harvest, Christophe sorts the grapes back at the winery. Depending on the conditions of the vintage, he de-stems the majority of his grapes, macerates them at low temperatures in oak cuves, and punches down the must twice per day. The must ferments on native yeasts in both stainless steel and concrete, and the wines age according to their crus, using as little at 15% new oak for the village wines with a maximum of 50% for the Bonnes Mares grand cru. Charming, seductive, and impressively age-worthy!
