Tasting notes for the Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 1999 - Domaine Georges Roumier

  • EYE: The robe of this Bonnes-Mares is a brilliant and deep ruby, gracefully revealing its age. Subtle garnet reflections enliven this color.
  • NOSE: Aromas of ripe red fruits, such as currant and black cherry, intertwine harmoniously with delicate notes of cedar wood, truffle, and sweet spices. Whiffs of tobacco and leather enrich this captivating olfactory palette, offering an enchanting sensory experience.
  • MOUTH: The tasting session promises to be an apex of refinement. The attack is velvety and precise, revealing a silky texture on the palate. Flavors of red and black fruits express themselves intensely, accompanied by nuances of licorice, cocoa, and woody touches. The tannins are well-integrated to the wine, providing a balanced structure and a persistent and delightful finish.

In short: This Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 1999 from Domaine Georges Roumier is a wine that charms with its complexity and finesse. Its brilliant ruby robe attests to its elegant evolution. On the nose, the captivating bouquet unveils a symphony of ripe red fruit aromas and spices, complemented by subtle woody notes. On the palate, the experience is refined and velvety, with a perfect harmony between fruity flavors and spicy nuances. This grand cru pairs beautifully with delicate dishes such as roasted quails with figs, duck magret, or aged cheeses. Wine enthusiasts can enjoy it now, but it also has the potential to age in the cellar for another 5 to 10 years, for those seeking further bottle evolution.

Fine wines of Chambolle-Musigny

 

The Domaine Georges Roumier was created back in 1924, when Georges married Geneviève Quanquin. The newlyweds decided to take care of the vineyard belonging to Geneviève's family and started their winemaking business. Over the years, Georges' talent as a winemaker made this little Burgundian estate the talk of the town. In 1961, his son Jean-Marie took the helm of the estate, until 1981. Today, Christophe (Georges Roumier's grandson) is the one managing the legendary domaine.

He takes the utmost care of the 12 hectares of vineyard, growing near the small village of Chambolle-Musigny, in the Côte de Nuits. As a way to show respect for the family traditions, and for the nature that has given him so much, Christophe has sworn to never use any chemical fertilizer. He even spends extra time pampering the oldest grapevines, which he thinks make the best wine. Per choice, yields are low (only 40,000 bottles per year), which means his different vintages can become quite rare.

Thanks to his hard work and a keen interest in international trade (a Japanese export office was established in 1987), Christophe turned the name "Georges Roumier" into a world renown brand. The wines he produces are all incredibly complex and balanced, able to reach their peak after just a few years of cellaring.
