Domaine G. Roumier 2014 Bonnes Mares 1er Cru

Description

Stephen Tanzer 95 Points: "Dark red. A sexy hint of woodsmoke complements sweet scents of cherry liqueur and purple berries. Tight-grained and fine, but with terrific inner-mouth lift to its dark berry, spice and violet flavors. Wonderfully juicy, lively wine with a light touch. Not a fleshy powerhouse, and not showing the obvious mineral structure today of the Ruchottes-Chambertin, but this utterly seamless wine is richer and fruitier. The noble tannins are almost invisible today and yet the finish boasts terrific thrust. This knockout will need a solid decade to approach maturity."

Robert Parker 95 - 97 Points: "The 2014 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has a fragrant, floral bouquet with touches of blueberry, violet, wet limestone and effervescent blood orange. There is simply wonderful delineation here. The palate is very well structured, linear and strict in accordance with the vintage, driving acidity here maintaining the freshness with superb minerality on the finish. Oh yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

Whenever I meet Christophe Roumier, I get the impression of a Burgundy superstar in the eye of a storm. Around him, the world over, Roumier is the Holy Grail for collectors bidding astronomical sums for bottles that bear his family name. There is a cavalcade of visitors yearning to tour his cellars and meet the man…just to look at his barrel-and-a-bit of Musigny would be enough. And Christophe himself? Well, he just the usual down to earth, self-effacing gentleman that he always is and always will be. He’s just concerned with his vines and his winery. All the hullabaloo out there beyond Chambolle? Well, sometimes I think he would prefer if it could all be left to the likes of DRC and Leroy. Christophe never asked to be an icon."
