Meo Camuzet Vosne Romanee Les Chaumes 2019 750mL


"Aromas of cherries, dark chocolate, sweet soil tones and potpourri preface Meo's 2019 Vosne-Romanee 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. Jean-Nicolas Meo began picking on September 13, observing that "everything was ripe at once this year," and that alcohol levels - for the most part, around 14% - were a little higher than he would have wished for. Yet the wines in the glass are hard to fault: Meo excelled in 2018, and his 2019s are even more structurally refined and vibrant. As I've written before, Meo's wines see quite a long elevage, and they can often be a little structural and introverted in the fall following the vintage, but these 2019s, just like the 2018s at the same stage last year, were remarkably open for inspection. Displaying superb concentration and mid-palate amplitude without any particular perception of heaviness, I found much to admire; and, in summation, this is a very fine portfolio that, when taken as a set, appears to match or surpass what was achieved here in 2018."
