Domaine Georges Roumier possesses a rich and captivating terroir cultivated with passion and philosophy by Christophe Roumier. Georges Roumier wines are complex – they ally lightness and intensity, charm and long-lasting taste.
But for Christophe Roumier «There is no Roumier style but rather a Roumier philosophy. This unique vinification process that allows to relieve each terroir, each appellation! »
These wines, recognized by their durability and their astonishing youth are still tasted by the amateurs 60 years after their bottling.
Standing aside from the BIO labels confines, Christophe Roumier doesn’t use any chemical inputs (fertilisers or pesticides) during the vine flowering period and lets the plant draw its resources from the exceptional soils.
The privilege is given to old vines (40 years on average). They do not replant, but transplant to ensure a permanent background of old vines and taste characteristics that only the « aged » vines can provide.
For several generations only indigenous yeasts, found in Chambolle-Musigny Domaine fermenting room are used for winemaking.
