In more recent times there have been three significant additions to the Roumier portfolio. In 1977, when the Thomas-Bassot domaine was being sold, a substantial slice of Ruchottes-Chambertin came on the market. Two parcels were quickly snapped up by Charles Rousseau and Dr Georges Mugneret. The third was acquired by a businessman and oenophile from Rouen, one Michel Bonnefond. At Rousseau's suggestion Bonnefond entered into a metayage arrangement with the Roumiers, and Christophe now gets two thirds of the yield of this 0.54 ha parcel. You can find under both labels. It is the same wine.

Tasting note: Jasper Morris, March 2019

Amber with lighter rim, elegant fruit, still youthful, mouth filling, rose petal and strawberry aromatics. The wine fills out quite a bit in the glass, starting to mature but there is warmth and energy. Later it develops a steely, fine backbone, a really lovely expression of Ruchottes.
