2018 Charmes Chambertin
By Domaine Georges Roumier
Current market price
Scores and tasting notes
Expressive aromas of cherries, rose petals, orange rind and red fruit compote introduce the 2018 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, a medium to full-bodied, broad and layered wine that's supple, charming and fleshy, with powdery tannins and juicy acids, concluding with a long and sapid finish. Roumier opted to use 40% whole cluster this year, and the results are very fine indeed. While this isn't an easy wine to find, I sometimes think that, along with the Morey Bussière, this is the most comparatively underrated wine in the cellar at this address.
