The Domaine Georges Roumier is one of the longest-established estate bottling domaines in the Côte D’Or. And one of the very best of all.
The Domaine was created in 1924. At that time, most of the production was sold to local merchants. In 1945, however, Georges Roumier initiated the practice of domaine bottling. Ever since, the reputation of the Roumier name has soared ever-higher.
The domaine was relatively small then, so Georges filled his time as vineyard manager for the Comte Georges de Vogue, but made great strides in ensuring Roumier’s wines were eventually bottled on site, rather than being sent elsewhere.
Since 1982 the estate has been run by Jean-Marie’s son Christophe, who studied oenology at Dijon University and has been largely responsible for propelling the wines to their current status, and over the years the estate has grown to include holdings in the finest of the Chambolle Premier Crus as well in the Grand Crus of Bonnes-Mares, Clos de Vougeot, Le Musigny and Corton-Charlemagne.
