Domaine G. Roumier Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Clos de La Bussiere is red Burgundy made from Pinot Noir grapes sourced from a single walled vineyard with an original Cistercian wall dating back to the 12th century.
Domaine G. Roumier is an extremely highly regarded, and one of the longest established (1924), Burgundy wine producers who are based in the heart of Chambolle Musigny. The estate has been run by Christophe Roumier since 1982 and their wines are characterised as being complex, combining lightness and intensity with great grace and length. Today, the Domaine covers 11.52 hectares in Chambolle-Musigny, Morey-Saint-Denis, and Corton-Charlemagne. Christophe says, “There is no Roumier style but rather a Roumier philosophy. Vinification is there to reveal each terroir, each appellation!”
