Yum, yum, yum! Yum, yum!
A lovely example of this storied Burgundy district. This village wine is the equal of most premier cru red burgundies.
13% alcohol
Dark purple-red color with some pretty scarlet or crimson glints when held under direct light.
Quite aromatic with floral fragrance (primarily violets and maybe some lilac?) and rich, ripe black fruits.
Ripe dark fruits predominate mid-palate. Tartness only kicks in a little on the finish. Lengthy finish.
An enticing, sultry wine of finesse. I had it with porkchops with mushroom sauce and rice but it would be a good candidate for pairing with duck breast with blackberry or plum sauce.
It's listed at $34.99 while the 2003 Roumier Chambolle Musigny is listed at $59.99 pre-arrival. I paid slightly more for the Digioia-Royer C-M VV (old vines) but I actually prefer this to the old vines rendition which may see more French oak aging.

Great notes. Will keep a sharp eye out for it.
