Roumier's 2017s are beautiful.
I've been buying every bottle that I can find and sending offers whenever the opportunity presents itself.
The vintage has such purity and fineness that it captures much of what I love about Roumier. In the 2017 vintage, you get an absolutely gorgeous Bussière. It possesses a vivid transparency with killer length and a firm mineral core.
I am very happy to offer a modest parcel of bottles and incredibly rare magnums of Roumier's 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis1er Cru Clos de la Bussière.
I have a soft spot for Bussière. I've had so many great experiences with the wine. Bussière ages beautifully. A bottle of 1995 that we drank a few years ago was gorgeous and still holding plenty in reserves.
John Gilman captures Bussière well when he writes, it's "deep complex and very long-lived... and is very deserving of a place in any conscientiously-stocked Burgundy collection."
The 1er Cru Clos de la Bussière sits in the southern section of Morey at the border of Chambolle and is a monopole. It lies below the Grand Cru Clos de Tart and has very stony soil.
Burghound calls the 2017 "finer than it usually is and should reward extended keeping." That nicely sums up the wine. There's power and edge, but also suaveness and finesse. I really like how the 2017 combines earth with high-toned notes.
As you can guess, we have a very limited amount available. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.

Burghound: "An unusually spicy nose reflects notes of earth and a whiff of game on the black raspberry and violet scents. There is a fleshy, even velvety, mouthfeel to the nicely voluminous medium-bodied flavors that flash focused power on the ever-so-mildly rustic and beautifully complex finale that delivers sneaky good length. This youthfully austere effort is finer than it usually is and should reward extended keeping."
