Domaine G. Roumier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Cras 2012


4.7 / 5.0750 ml@Chef’s Table · Fine & Rare Dinner Vol. 1 by Maksym Demchenko

This wine's bouquet is captivating, offering a rich tapestry of aromas that include meat, earth, game, dried peonies, mushrooms, clove, black pepper, autumn leaves, and an aged cake of baimudan. The complexity and nuance of this bouquet are remarkable, presenting a very complete olfactory experience.

The acidity is wonderful, contributing to a vibrancy that makes the wine remarkably juicy despite its age. Its near-perfect balance and structure speak to the careful crafting and aging process it has undergone. The aftertaste extends for an impressively long duration, culminating in notes of blood, aged baimudan cake, and autumn leaves. Exceptional.

Domaine G. Roumier

Founded in 1924 by Georges Roumier, the Domaine has been a family-operated estate for generations. Georges began domaine bottling in 1945, a practice that significantly elevated the estate's reputation. Christophe Roumier, representing the third generation, joined in 1982 and took full charge in 1992, continuing the legacy of producing seductively fruity wines with excellent ageing potential.

Over the years, the Domaine has expanded its vineyard holdings, particularly in the Bonnes-Mares area, combining vineyards from both Chambolle-Musigny and Morey-Saint-Denis. The estate now covers 11.52 hectares across several notable appellations.
