Georges Roumier is without a doubt one of the greats of the Burgundy wine world. While the domain began by selling their wine off, the practice eventually led to bottling the wines on site. This practice was a little ahead of its time, as most domaines didn’t typically do both. Current generation Christophe Roumier says it best with this quote: "We don’t make Pinot Noir; we make wines from terroir which expresses itself through Pinot Noir." The family has holdings in several villages throughout both the Cote de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. Of all the Burgundy domaines, Roumier is consistently among the most elegant and complex.
On the great hillside of the Grand Cru ‘Bonnes-Mares,’ the Roumier family owns two different parcels from which the fruit is harvested. The vine age is about 40 years old. The fruit is harvested and vinified all separately with more than half of the fruit destemmed, and aged in oak, 30% of which is new. If there were any style of Burgundy to age, this would be a shining example.
