The 2019 Vosne-Romanée Les Chaumes 1er Cru comes from just over half a hectare of vines. Pretty red cherries and cassis fruit furnish the nose, which is well defined and demonstrates more intensity than the Village Cru. The palate is medium-bodied and fleshy, with supple tannins, good acidity and a dash of white pepper and bay leaf toward the finish. Again, probably an earlier-drinking Les Chaumes compared to others, but it has elegance and charm.
