Stephen Tanzer, January 2018,
Bright, dark red. Sexy scents of dark raspberry and spices. Juicy and energetic, with good sappy concentration and elegance for Bourgogne Rouge. Has the structure to support several years of aging. Alas, Roumier only makes about 2,000 bottles of this wine annually--and none in the frost vintage of 2016.
Jancis Robinson, November 2016,
Tank sample. Fresh and racy on the nose. Clean, almost lean. Not the opulence of some but very pure and should eventually be very satisfying. Impressively pure and long. Drink 2019-2023
Domaine Georges Roumier et Fils
This blanket regional appellation can apply to wines throughout Burgundy (60% of the area's production) as long as they comply with regulations relating to grape type, yield and alcohol content. Reds and roses are from Pinot Noir or Gamay. Whites are Chardonnay. They are usually the most straightforward of the Burgundy wines, and as a result are the least expensive and the most approachable upon release. In the hands of a more serious producer these can represent exceptional value and quality. The wines are made with the same care and attention to detail as their grander wines. However, they may not qualify for a village or communal appellation because the vines are too young or the vineyard area is outside the appellation boundary.
