Chambolle-Musigny: 2013 Georges Roumier & 2015 Jacques-Frederic Mugnier

October 27, 2018

Another pairing of Roumier and Mugnier within the same week for EUR300, this time on Chambolle-Musigny village off the list of La Cabotte in Nuits-Saints-Georges on the evening of 26 October 2018. As the vintages were dissimilar, both were drunk open label.

2013 Domaine Georges Roumier Chambolle-Musigny. Dark deep colour. Deeply aromatic, exuding delicious dark cherries and dark currants. Medium-bodied and fleshy right off the blocks, displaying superb acidity and excellent presence. Quite seamless, developing a more intense minerally tone after an hour, finishing with good length albeit with a trace of glare. Doesn’t quite possess the deep lush opulence usually associated with this famous domaine, probably a function of the difficult vintage.

2015 Domaine Jacques-Frederic Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny. Equally dark, the Mugnier sported a sharper masculine profile from the first pour with a distinct minerally tone over dark fruits, dark currants and traces of red cherries on the firm palate, structured with dark tannins, slightly sweet. It opened very well after more than an hour, more fleshy and balanced, displaying excellent resolution at the finish, fleshing out with great open intensity. Excellent.
