Laurent Roumier Hautes Cotes de Nuits Rouge 'La Poirelotte' 2019
Laurent Roumier is the grandson of the legendary Georges Roumier and his holdings originate from that grand old estate with more recent additions of 6 hectares in the Hautes Cotes de Nuits being purchased in the 1990s and further purchases in Chambolle Musigny.
His father Alain was the cellar master for Comte de Vogue for nearly 3 decades before taking his portion of the family vineyards to farm for his own family. The cellars are almost next door to Georges Roumier at the back of the village in the rue de Vergy (which perhaps could be called the 'rue des Roumiers' as the various branches of the family seem to occupy most of the lane).
2019 Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits rouge 'La Poirelotte'
From a parcel of vines planted from 1970s through to 2000 located higher above Chambolle village vineyards. No new oak is used for this wine. Vibrant lifted perfume and spicy brambley fruit with very fine tannins and a long fresh finish. Very enjoyable now yet has vigour and enough depth to cellar for several years but why wait.
