Ripe plum and cherry tinged with the bitterness of their pits inform a Roumier 2007 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras that generously coats the palate and caries a lip-smacking sense of salinity into its lingering finish of lightly tart yet sweetly ripe fruitiness. Having commented on the dip that his 2007s seem to be experiencing, Roumier adds that he is surprised at the generosity of this one, albeit from a bottle that had been opened for 3-4 hours and which he testified was not as expressive when first opened. The tannins here are impressively fine-grained. I suspect this needs a couple of additional years in bottle but would still plan to drink it over the next 6-8. ||Christophe Roumier says his 2008 fruit demanded rigorous sorting to remove under-ripe bunches (whereas in 2007 this was necessary to remove rot), but he liked what was left enough to indulge in a significant proportion (most frequently 50%) of stems and whole clusters for the fermentations. "With such tiny, perfect berries, it was almost a shame to de-stem any of them," he remarks. Late to go through malo, like so many others of that year, these 2008s certainly preserve the vintage's primary virtues of vivacity and interactive complexity. Not more than 50% new wood was employed, to guard against loss of the vintage's vividly bright fruit in a vintage Roumier felt was unusually sensitive in that regard. Some of the 2008s remind him of 1980 or, more precisely, of what the 1980s could have become given today's standards of viticulture and selection. Roumier has a higher opinion of 2007 and their age-worthiness than do I, considering them superior to 2006 or 2008 - and given the way the two that I tasted from bottle showed, that opinion is not inexplicable. (I tasted the other Roumier 2007s too early in their evolution to render proper verdicts, although they were certainly effusively generous if not yet complex even pre-malo.) Roumier employed comparable percentages of stems and whole clusters, and indulged in more frequent pigeage than in 2008, comparing his resulting 2007s with 1985s. Wine Advocate.June, 2010
