  • TN: 2005 Roumier Chambolle-Musigny

    I admit. I have an unnatural attraction to this wine.
    I take full responsibility.
    My goodness. This always produces. Tonight with a basic pot roast, this is
    absolutely stunning.

    2005 Roumier Chambolle-Musigny

    Darker fruit on the nose on opening. With time this fleshes out. A really bright searing core of red fruit. Penetrating on the nose and palate. This is at once very powerful and elegant. A really long finish. Well beyond its lowly status as a village wine. Stunning even now as it starts to close a little.

    Michael. I still have 15 or so left. I will do my best to lay off but no promises.

    Don, sounds fantastic. I love young wines so no complaints here. If you need any help with the other fifteen you know where to find me . . .

          I hope one of those last 15 shows up at one of our little get togethers in the future.
          Happy New Year Don.

            LOL Don. How many times have you had this so far? I have been at it twice, but luckily someone else's bottle both times.

            This is a baby for sure, and I always advocate tasting a wine young when possible- but this is a rare case where I think a person is going to miss out by not opening this young a time or two. It is that good and showing that well...

              Hi Don,

              Glad to see it still works for you...based on your earlier notes I bought loads of this...haven't tried one from my stash yet (that I recall...did we have this at LPdH?).

              What do you think...are they closing up? Leave 'em for how long?

                I had the 04 and 05 the same night one after the other... and preferred the 04. Tough wines to judge when so young, but honestly I didn't love either.

                  Was this the regular, village bottling?

                    Thanks for the note, Don. I've had one of my 05 Roumier CMs, and I agree with you-- it is seriously good. In fact, it may be better than the 95 Roumier CM which is still drinking great at age 13.

                      The 1990 is still there also, fading......but still there.......

                        Had the 01 last night and it was still a baby.

                          Thanks Don.
                          I will use this 05 as a reverse reference for the single bottle of 02 I have of this. I would assume both are similar given the producer and great vintages.

                            Don, thanks for the note. I had this a couple of months ago and even though I thought it was great, too young perhaps, a little too much fruit sweetness for me, like the Mugnier CM I think you can find better value wines from less revered domaines at similar price. Having said this I am pleased to have it in the cellar and I am a great Roumier fan - the 99 BM being my wine of the year.

                              Dave,
                              This stuff is still pretty open but you can tell it is starting to firm up a little.
                              I don't know how long it will stay like this.
                              Happy New Year to you.
                              Don
