Domaine Roumier" Chambolle Musigny- les Amoureuses" Premier Cru 1984

Domaine Roumier is managed today by Christophe Roumier, who became partner with his father Jean-Marie in 1982 and then took over completely in 1992. He is the grand-son of Georges Roumier, who founded the Domain in 1924 and initiated domain bottling in 1945. The Domain is based in Chambolle-Musigny. The Domain was expanded by Jean-Marie by adding “Clos de la Bussière” in Morey St Denis in 1953, the vineyards in “Corton Charlemagne” in 1968 and the vineyards in “Musigny” in 1978. In 1994 Christophe leased vineyards in “Charmes-Chambertin” and “Ruchottes-Chambertin”. 

Domaine Roumier holdings include: 

5 Grands Crus: Corton-Charlemagne (0.2ha), Musigny (0.1ha), Bonnes-Mares (1.60ha), Ruchottes-Chambertin (0.54ha) and Charmes-Chambertin (0.28ha).

4 Premier Crus: Clos de la Bussière (2.59ha), Les Amoureuses (0.4ha), Les Cras (1.75ha) and Combottes (0.27ha).

In addition it also owns the villages Chambolle-Musigny (3.70ha). 

The Domain is renowned for having very low yields and applying de-stemming (except for Musigny and Charmes-Chambertin where de-stemming such small holdings would further reduce the already minute production of these two Grand Crus). A thoughtful planting of clones in lieu of massal selection has also been implemented in the Domain, as well as a rigidly accurate selection of berries in the sorting table (since 2003). In the cellar, a cold soak is applied before fermentation (which happens in wooden open-top vats and lasts three weeks). Pipeage during fermentation (or punching down the cap) can happen up to three times a day in a temperature controlled environment. The use of new oak is moderate with 20% for the village wines, 30-40% for the Premier Crus and up 50% for the Grand Crus. Malolactic fermentation can sometimes take as long as the beginning of the summer before completion. The wines are neither fined nor filtered. 

While their Musigny (if you can find it) and Bonnes Mares are terrific, the domaine is most well known for its Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses (the lovers). Here, the wine’s intensity, elegance and quality makes it nearly equal to a Grand Cru. The silky texture and delicate layers of flavours of Les Amoureuses would have most people considering Musigny rather than a 1er Cru. The soil types are very similar in the two vineyards with active limestone providing finesse and silky tannins.
