Reviews 90-92 points Wine Advocate "Offering up aromas of sweet red berries, warm spices, peony and subtle soil tones, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a fine core of fruit that cloaks its rich but fine-grained tannic chassis. (WK)" 91 points Vinous "The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis Clos de la Bussiere 1er Cru has quite a straightforward bouquet of raspberry and cranberry fruit, pleasant sous-bois aromas percolating through with time. This gains complexity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine acidity and chiseled tannins... (NM)"

About Domaine G. Roumier / Christophe Roumier

The eminent Christophe Roumier manages the prestigious Domaine George Roumier, a Burgundy powerhouse known for its premier and grand crus that garner the admiration of sommeliers and collectors alike. Established in 1924, the Domaine's superior fruit springs from Chambolle Musigny's stellar terroirs – Le Musigny, Les Amoureuses, and Bonnes Mares – and three distinguished parcels cultivated en métayage: Echezeaux, Ruchottes, and Charmes Chambertin. Despite Christophe's insistence on pruning rigorously to ensure low yields, the resultant wines are opulent, concentrated, and marked by a unique balance of power and restraint.

With an unswerving dedication to quality, Christophe personally sorts the harvest, mostly de-stemming the grapes based on vintage conditions and allowing them to macerate in oak cuves at low temperatures. The must, punched down twice daily, ferments on native yeasts in both stainless steel and concrete. The aging of wines is handled judiciously according to their crus, utilizing a modest 15% new oak for the village wines and reaching a maximum of 50% for the grandiose Bonnes Mares grand cru. These expert techniques result in wines that are enchanting, seductive, and notably age-worthy.

Currently, Domaine George Roumier spreads across 11.52 hectares in Chambolle-Musigny, Morey-Saint-Denis, and Corton-Charlemagne. Here, Christophe leverages his intelligence and winemaking prowess to produce wines that are not just consistently delicious but carry profound elegance - a testament to the ancient craft of winemaking.

Maintaining a minimal dependence on new wood, Christophe pursues and accomplishes remarkable precision in his wines. Thus, the limited production of globally renowned crus such as Bonnes-Mares, Chambolle-Musigny, Charlemagne Grand Cru, and Ruchottes-Chambertin, render these offerings as coveted collectibles. Domaine George Roumier, therefore, continues to stand as an undeniable icon of Côte de Nuits, showcasing an unrivaled blend of heritage, expertise, and an unwavering commitment to quality.
