2002 Musigny

Domaine G. Roumier

flagBurgundy / France

Roumier elected to perform the elevage of his entire 2002 Musigny production in one new 350 liter barrel. Fulfilling every winemaker’s nightmare, the barrel’s toasting was flawed by the cooperage, according to Roumier, marring the wine with excessively toasty aromas and flavors. Christophe quickly racked it into a used 228-liter traditional barrel and an older 114 liter one but the damage was done. When tasted, it exhibited a tight, rough, light-bodied character (perhaps from the quick racking) as well as the charred barrel scents and flavors. Wine Advocate # 153. Pierre Rovani
