Domaine Meo-Camuzet Vosne Romanée Les Chaumes 2019
|France, Burgundy, Vosne-Romanée
Aromas of cherries, dark chocolate, sweet soil tones and potpourri preface Méo's 2019 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Chaumes, a medium to full-bodied, layered and elegantly muscular wine with a generous core of fruit framed by rich and powdery tannins. This is quite a virile, powerful Chaumes this year, and it will reward bottle age.
The 2019 Vosne-Romanee Les Chaumes ler Cru is very concentrated and powerful on the nose of crushed-violet- and iodine-infused ripe black cherries and creme 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 Meo-Camuzet's other cuvees.
