The Story

Christophe makes the wine as naturally as possible, vines are hand-tended, the wine undergoes a controlled fermentation with maceration before and after, and the wines rest sur lie in barriques for as long as possible, usually 16 to 18 months. The long slow ageing enables these wines to be bottled without filtration. 15-25% new oak is used for the village appellations whilst 40-50% is used for the 1ers and Grand Crus. The result is intense, no...


Wine Information

In 1924 Georges Roumier settled in Chambolle Musigny taking over the Domain which belonged to his wife's family.

Written Notes

Flavors of spice, cedar, meat, tomato, gravy and worcestershire emerged in this saucy mouthful of a wine. It was classic '59 all the way with its saucy and ripe style, hailed as 'tropical, yet evolving into a spicy finish' by our host. He continued, 'The fruit explodes then comes to a pinpoint that ties it all together.' A kiss of garden flavors rounded out this muscular wine
