2005 Domaine Georges Roumier Bonnes Mares Burgundy - 96 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 96 BH - In contrast to the aromatic fireworks of the Amoureuses, here the nose is equally, indeed stunningly complex and deep but with a discreet and brooding character of mostly violets and blueberry notes against a backdrop of fresh earth that continues on the rich, intense and quite firmly structured big-boned flavors that are hugely long and built to age for decades. This will need at least 15 years to arrive at its majority but as this is one of the longest-lived wines in all of Burgundy, it will still be alive and well in 50 years. BH
