"Christophe Roumier is recognised worldwide to produce exceptionally balanced wines. His wines express both nuance and sensuality."
The soils in Côte de Nuits result on the consequences of the uplift of the Alps and the collapse of the plain of the Saône. The vines are mainly planted on limestone slopes. At the summit sits the famous "stone of premeaux", giving Romanée-Conti, Richeboug, and La Tâche outstanding wines. The soils are formed of calcareous scree, limestone, and red silt with a large diversity of terroir contributing to the typicality of the Côte de Nuits wines.
A Passionate Lineage
Created in 1924 by Georges Roumier, the estate is one of the jewels in Chambolle-Musigny. Since 1982, Christophe, George's grandson, is managing the family domaine. The primary goal is to produce wines, reds, except Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, that express the characteristics specific to each terroir while respecting the vintage year. This requires rigorous methods during the vines’ cultivation, vinification and ageing processes.
