2018 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Chaumes" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1463168 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Chaumes wafts from the glass with an inviting bouquet of orange rind, peonies, red berries and ripe cherries. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with an enveloping attack and a generous core of ripe, sweet fruit that's balanced by some fine, chalky tannins and lively acids. This is a youthfully head-turning bottle of Les Chaumes in the making. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Les Chaumes 1er Cru has an understated bouquet, tightly wound with crushed stone percolating through the red berry fruit. The lightly spiced, medium-bodied palate displays an attractive grainy texture, good tension and a precise if slightly rigid finish that will soften with time. Good potential. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here the very fresh and pure nose is spicier still with notes of anise, hoisin, sandalwood and floral nuances that add a touch of elegance to the mostly red berry scents. The vibrant and tension-filled medium-bodied flavors are firmer and perhaps less seductive than usual but also longer and more structured than usual. I would add that it's rare when this wine is at more or less the same level as the Murgers or the Boudots but at this admittedly early stage, it appears that it is. We will of course see in time but for now, I find this to be very impressive in 2018. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chaumes from Jean-Nicolas Méo is another strong premier cru, with, again, quite a black fruity personality this year. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a mix of sweet dark berries, black cherries, bitter chocolate, dark soil tones, Vosne spices and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a good core of fruit, fine-grained tannins and a long, soil-driven and tangy finish. This is lovely and should come forward nicely and start drinking with real generosity at eight to ten years of age. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Broad and fleshy, exuding black cherry, raspberry, plum and spice flavors. There are light vanilla and sandalwood elements, along with chalky, tactile tannins on the lingering finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

K&L Notes

91-94 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Medium depth of purple here. Alpine strawberries and fresh raspberries infuse the bouquet. Darker fruit appears in the mouth with an enviably balanced sweetness, which covers the wood and the tannins."
