2019 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Chaumes" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1535610 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark 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. Drinking Window 2024 - 2049. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. Jean-Nicolas Méo 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: Méo excelled in 2018, and his 2019s are even more structurally refined and vibrant. As I've written before, Méo's wines see quite a long élevage, 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.

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

K&L Notes

93-95pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "45 Year old vines are giving consistent results. Dense powerful purple. Very complete all enveloping rich purple fruit on the nose. The alcohol is not too prominent. Very succulent up front, with ripe deep red cherries, and a nice little tingle of acidity. The vines and grapes have been well nourished by the clay soil."
