Chambolle Les Cras, Domaine Georges Roumier 2008
Here there is no reduction and the cool, airy and pure red pinot fruit and stone notes dissolve seamlessly into the equally mineral-driven, detailed and precise medium-bodied flavors that are at once seductive yet nervy with a silky mouth feel and really lovely focus on the tension-filled finish. Roumier always seems to succeed with this wine and the '08 version is no exception. I would give this 7 to 9 years in the cellar first.
