2000 Domaine Georges Roumier Bonnes Mares Burgundy - 91 BH

Domaine Georges Roumier is based in the Côte de Nuits village of Chambolle-Musigny, where it produces some of Burgundy's most expensive, highly rated, and sought-after wines.

The Roumier story began when Georges Roumier married Genevieve Quanquin in 1924. Quanquin had family vineyards in Chambolle-Musigny, which Roumier began to expand upon. Instead of buying plots outright, Roumier used the French idea of metayage to build up the domaine, whereby an individual cultivates the land for the owner in exchange for a proportion of the produce. Roumier began with small plots in Musigny, moving onto Bonnes Mares as well as securing two plots in Clos de Vougeot. Most recently, Domaine Georges Roumier expanded into Ruchottes-Chambertin, where it is entitled to two thirds of the harvest.

When Georges Roumier died in 1965, his son Jean-Marie took over the winemaking. Eventually Christophe, Jean-Marie's son, took over and is the domaine's current winemaker. His focus is very much on the terroir, so new oak is used sparingly and the temperature of the ferment is kept low to allow for the delicacy and fragrance of the wine to shine through.

The most important plots in the Georges Roumier portfolio are in the Bonnes Mares Grand Cru vineyard and the Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Amoureuses vineyard, which make two of the domaine's most sought-after wines.

Rating 2000 Domaine Georges Roumier Bonnes Mares Burgundy - 91 BH Here the expressive and still relatively primary nose is ripe, pure and nicely complex that merges into detailed, balanced and harmonious flavors that like the 2001 are built more along the lines of a thoroughbred than a robust draft horse. I like the overall sense of grace and the only nit is the barest touch of greenness on the admirably long finish. By the incredible standards of this wine, a solid if not sensational effort though one that certainly transcends the vintage. BH The star at chez Roumier in the 2000 vintage is Christophe’s Bonnes Mares. Its beguiling aromas of spiced sweet cherries lead to a medium-bodied, silky-textured character crammed with cherries, currants, and candied raspberries. Lush, generous, and pure, it is deep, concentrated, and possesses a long, expressive finish. RP
