2002 Domaine Georges Roumier Bonnes Mares Burgundy - 95 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.

Burghound

Burghound 95 BH - 2002 Domaine Georges Roumier Bonnes Mares Burgundy - 95 BH The nose hasn't budged an inch since my original review in-bottle review and rests entirely in the red fruit spectrum and rather than spice, there is an intense floral and violet quality followed by detailed, ultra pure and tautly muscular flavors that deliver real punch and a lovely minerality on the incredibly long backend. A complete and seamless wine of enormous complexity and considerable underlying reserve plus enough structure for at least three plus decades of life. A great effort that is even better than I originally thought it could be from cask and because it appears to be evolving at a snail's pace, I have extended my initial suggested drinking window accordingly.
