Domaine G. Roumier, Chambolle-Musigny 2007 Give this some air to allow the fruit to emerge. Then there’s a mix of cherries, moist black earth in the garden and brown spices. In the mouth this is just a baby, with plenty of structure and bright cherry fruit.
The Chambolle-Musignys crafted by Christophe Roumier are the paradigm for the appellation and one shouldn’t pass up the affordable village wine. Mis en bouteille in Chambolle 13% purchased for $69.99 at the Wine Club Domaine G. Roumier
Domaine de Montille, Beaune, 1er Cru, Les Greves 2007 This wine is also a bit inward when first opened so do give it some air. In the mouth the fruit is quite expressive in a structured format, with chewiness and long acidity. Mis en bouteille au domaine a Volnay 13% purchased for $63.99 at K&L
