Laurent Roumier is the grandson of the legendary Georges Roumier and the cousin of Christophe Roumier, (who currently manages domain George Roumier), and the son of Alain Roumier who was the cellar master for Comte de Vogue for 30 years from the 1950s through to the 1980s. After working for his brother for many years he created his own domaine with 4ha's of vines which were rented from his family. Recent additions of 6 hectares in the Hautes Cotes de Nuits, purchased in the 1990's and further purchases in Chambolle Musigny means he now has just over 12has of vines at his disposal.

The vines are on average 35 years old, and they are farmed traditionally and naturally, with neither fertilizer nor herbicide. Green harvests are carried out in the summer when necessary. All of the vines are harvested by hand. In the cellar, the work is carried out with the same level of precision. The grapes are entirely destemmed the vinified in concrete vats. Alcoholic fermentation lasts around 15 days, with pumping over and punching down every day, and the temperature is checked every day. When it comes to pressing, the team decants the wines for 12 hours in vats and then barrels (50% of which are new for the grand crus and the premier crus, 30% for the villages and 10% for the Bourgogne Hautes-cotes-de-nuits). The elevage lasts 15 to 18 months, with the barrels (mostly Tonnelerie Rousseau) being topped up once a week and racked two or three times during the entire period of elevage.

Bourgogne Hautes-Cotes-de-Nuits comes from the La Poirelotte parcel of vines planted from 1970s through to 2000 located higher above Chambolle village vineyards. No new oak is used for this wine.

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and Medium- tannin. It is Medium in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
