About This Wine

Every year, I put just as much effort into tracking down Roumier's Chambolle AC as I do his top Grand Crus. That's how sought-after it is.

The explanation is simple: Even when you stack Roumier's Chambolle up against other top villages Burgundies, you realize that it exists on its own plane.

Roumier's Chambolle is dangerously close to the platonic ideal of the appellation - perfumed, texturally beguiling, and beautifully finessed.

The 2018 Chambolle flaunts just how elegant and appealing the wine can be. Burghound captures the wine really well when he writes that it is "silky and seductive." What's extraordinary about the 2018 is how it takes the impact and concentration of the vintage and renders it with a lacy finesse.

Roumier's Chambolle ages beautifully. It is easily among the longest aging villages wines. It will be fascinating to watch the 2018 evolve. Any time that we offer Roumier's Chambolle, it always sells out in a flash. I encourage you to get your orders in early.
