East-facing site at 250 m. Brief pre-ferment cold maceration. 15–18 months in barrel, 30% new. Cask sample. Mid to deep purplish crimson. Darker and more savoury/spicy than the village Vosne but still with generous ripe fruit, and very slightly floral. Inviting. Succulent and smooth on the palate, with that generosity of fruit making it so easy to taste even now. Rounded yet fresh, persistent. Very accomplished.
The 2019 Vosne-Romanée Les Chaumes 1er Cru clearly has more clarity on the nose compared directly with the Village Cru, offering raspberry coulis, freshly picked strawberry and a touch of rose petal. The palate is well defined with a fine bead of acidity, and lightly spiced with white pepper that complements the raspberry and blackberry fruit. Moderate length. This is a very decent Les Chaumes.
