NEW YORK – In the rarefied air of Burgundian giants, Roumier is one of the most distinctive names inextricably linked to the greatness of the perfumed yet substantial wines of Chambolle-Musigny. Run since 1992 by Christophe Roumier, the grandson of the domaine’s founder, the greatness of Chambolle wines is on full display. In fact, many consider the domaine’s example of the grand cru Bonnes Mares to be the archetypal example in top vintages.
