Lot #91. Georges Roumier Musigny 2001

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 96+ JG.
"Christophe Roumier has made an absolutely magical bottle of Musigny in the lovely 2001 vintage, and the wine is just starting to really blossom on both the nose and palate and is not too far away from reaching its primetime window of peak drinkability- where it will probably stay for half a century. The beautiful bouquet wafts from the glass in a glorious constellation of red and black cherries, gamebirds, a very, very complex base of soil, woodsmoke, fresh herbs, forest floor, coffee, a touch of balsam bough and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure, complex and rock solid at the core, with laser-like focus, melting tannins, tangy acids and stunning length and grip on the complex and oh so refined finish. Many thanks to my friend Florian for searching out a bottle of this wine to celebrate my birthday one evening while we were both in Burgundy." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Mar 2004
