Reviews 94-96 points Wine Advocate "The 2019 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru unwinds in the glass with scents of raspberries, cherries, warm spices, rose petals, peonies and violets. Full-bodied, muscular and concentrated, it's rich and structured, with bright acids and prodigious reserves of powdery tannin. Broad-shouldered and powerful, it will—as usual—require patience. (WK)" 96-98 points Vinous "...The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins that frame the pure blackberry and bilberry fruit, awash with superb salinity that gets the saliva flowing. Certainly a more intellectual Bonnes-Mares, it gains depth and density toward a finish that feels exceptionally long on the aftertaste. God created wine so that Christophe Roumier could make fermented grape juice like this. (NM)" 95 points Burghound "Ripe and exuberantly floral aromas possess intricate layering and plenty of spice along with a suggestion of earth. Once again there is a lovely texture to the succulent, round and sappy big-bodied flavors that coat the palate and particularly so on the moderately austere finale that displays simply superb length. This very powerful and impeccably well-balanced effort is shaped by dense but notably fine-grained tannins that should enable this to see its 30th birthday in fine fettle. In short, this is stunningly good. (AM)"

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.
