Chambolle Musigny Village Domaine Georges Roumier 2018

375,00

The Chambolle-Musigny Villages is produced from a tiny parcel of vines in the southwest portion of the commune and also includes some declassified 1er Cru fruit from Les Baudes and Fuées. From the excellent 2018 vintage, this is surprisingly fruit-laden, juicy and fresh yet has classical Vogüé firmness and youthful rusticity to the finish.

Description

Roumier’s 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Village opens in the glass with notes of ripe cherries, raspberries and plums, complemented by hints of warm spices, smoke and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, it’s ripe and muscular, with a lively core of fruit and rich, powdery tannins. More powerful than its 2017 counterpart, this will require some patience.

Christophe Roumier began picking on September 16, and his 2019s have turned out very nicely, reminding me of his 2015s at the same stage—though, if anything, they struck me as more vibrant despite their analytically somewhat higher alcohol levels. They’re more vibrant, certainly, than the rich and muscular 2018s, some of which I took this opportunity to revisit in bottle. I’ve also included notes on several of Roumier’s 2017s.
