Domain: Laurent Roumier
The new allocation of the week takes us to Burgundy and more specifically to the heart of the cult region, the Côte de Nuits. Laurent Roumier, heir to one of Burgundy’s most well-known families, produces superb wines from Chambolle-Musigny and its surrounding area in the purest tradition; wines which are aromatic, intense and elegant. Laurent Roumier is a rising star of the region, albeit very discrete - we recommend you try his wines as soon as possible!
Laurent Roumier, the cousin of Christophe (from the George Roumier domain) worked for a long time with his brother. Since 1991 he manages a four hectare-domain of rented vineyards, which he increased to seven hectares in 2005. These vineyards spread over the Bourgogne, Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny, Clos Vougeot and Bonnes-Mares appellations. Laurent Roumier traditionally cultivates and vinifies using the old methods of treading and pumping over, without a pre-fermentation "cold soak". A man of few words, Laurent is fairly secretive when it comes to "savoir-faire". However, his savoir-faire is highly regarded amongst the enlightened connoisseurs.
