Vosne Romanee Les Chaumes Meo-Camuzet 2019 (750ML)
90-92 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: “The 2019 Vosne-Romanée Les Chaumes 1er Cru is very concentrated and powerful on the nose of crushed-violet- and iodine-infused ripe black cherries and crème de cassis. A little over the top, maybe? The palate is very ripe, with layers of sweet cassis fruit, lush and precocious at the expense of terroir expression. A thoroughly pleasurable Les Chaumes, for sure, but not as intellectual as some of Méo-Camuzet’s other cuvées.” 12/20
90-92 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: “A fresh, cool and agreeably spicy nose displays notes of red and blue pinot fruit, plum, exotic tea and floral elements. The sleek, delicious and beautifully textured middle weight flavors possess a succulent and round mouthfeel, all wrapped in a lingering finish that flashes a touch of warmth. This is really quite pretty and a wine that should both drink well on the early side but offer a decade plus of development potential.” 01/21
95 Points, Charles Curtis, Decanter: “Méo owns two plots of Chaumes, totalling just over 2ha at the foot of the slope below Malconsorts. One was planted in the 1950s, the other in the 1970s, and the result is a powerful wine with pronounced aromas of ripe dark cherries, liquorice and a hint of smoke. The winemaking is not shy - punched down frequently and aged in 50% new oak casks - and this is decidedly tannic, and full-bodied, yet its approachable, highly drinkable nature makes it an absolute delight.” 10/20
