The 2014 Chambolle Musigny Villages has a refined bouquet with touches of hints of rose petal infusing the red berry fruit, fine minerality coming through. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and nicely structured. This displays good backbone for a village cru with fine precision on the slightly curtailed finish. Very fine.

Whenever I meet Christophe Roumier, I get the impression of a Burgundy superstar in the eye of a storm. Around him, the world over, Roumier is the Holy Grail for collectors bidding astronomical sums for bottles that bear his family name. There is a cavalcade of visitors yearning to tour his cellars and meet the man…just to look at his barrel-and-a-bit of Musigny would be enough. And Christophe himself? Well, he just the usual down to earth, self-effacing gentleman that he always is and always will be. He’s just concerned with his vines and his winery. All the hullabaloo out there beyond Chambolle? Well, sometimes I think he would prefer if it could all be left to the likes of DRC and Leroy. Christophe never asked to be an icon. Before starting the tasting of 2014s, I showed him some images on my camera, when I serendipitously happened to be eating a sandwich in Chambolle-Amoureuses when his team of pickers descended under the cloudless sky. He apologizes for not noticing me, though I refrain from interrupting growers at this most crucial time of the season. The 2015s will wait another 12 months. For the time being, there are 2014s to examine. “Until the end of June it was perfect,” he informed me. “The fruit set was okay and we were prepared for a great vintage. Then it was a bit wet in the summer and there was a lot of rainfall in August. We got a little hail but it did not affect the whole estate, just a little in Les Amoureuses. All the ripeness came in September when there was a heat-wave. There was some suzukii fruit fly and that was a source of worry because you didn't know how much you had [in your vineyard]. At least we didn't see any in 2015.” “We harvested from September 16 for five or six days and cropped at 32 hectoliters per hectare -- about average for the year. The fruit was healthy but we sorted more strictly where we had the suzukii and there was no rot. We used whole bunch, 22% for the Village Crus, 30% for the Bussières and 40% to 45% for the Grand Crus. The malolactics finished at the end of July and the wines were racked three weeks ago.” I asked Christophe how he finds the 2014s. “I like their fresh taste and fine tannin. There is a good level of acidity -- nothing prominent and well integrated.” With respect to the wines, of course, one has to maintain absolute objectivity when appraising wines that have such an ardent global following. How fortunate I am to be able to taste through the entire range (save for the Corton-Charlemagne…I cannot offer any other excuse except that I forgot to ask Christophe). Where he really excels is not the Musigny Grand Cru, even though the one and a half barrels are predestined to sell for thousands of Euros. No, it was the Chambolle-Musigny Amoureuses, a candidate for the wine of the vintage and the Bonnes-Mares that struck home runs. Few 2014s can match either for sheer exuberance, nascent energy, precision and terroir expression. They are wines that just slap a smile onto your face. Also, I particularly found great pleasure in Christophe’s delectable Charmes-Chambertin. This year, it seemed to out-perform a Ruchottes-Chambertin that felt a bit static and lacked the complexity of its compatriots from Mugneret-Gibourg and Rousseau. Of course, it is possible that it was not showing well on the day I visited. All in all, it was a set of wines that did nothing to deter Christophe’s legions of followers that crave every drop of his wines.
