Domaine Meo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanee les Chaumes 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"I drank a fair bit of the 1990 Méo-Camuzet Chaumes out of the blocks as well, and if one can picture that same, velvety wine with more mid-palate conviction and complexity from the now decidedly older vines in this vineyard, once can get a strong sense of this lovely wine in ’09. The nose offers up a beautifully complex and wide open mélange of black cherries, dark plums, chocolate, lovely soil tones, a touch of coffee bean and toasty new wood. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, voluptuous and chocolaty, with a sappy core of fruit, suave tannins and fine length and grip on the focused and classy finish. This is a very forward version of 2009 and also a fine example of how the much riper side of this vintage can still be an unqualified success....90" JG 11/10 "Sumptuous oaky nose, cherries. Plump, full-bodied, and very concentrated, has shoulders, delicious fruit, spicy and complex. Good length...4 Stars" Decanter 1/11. "Dark fruit flavors of black currant and blackberry grace this velvety red, whose dusty tannins and acidity keep it focused and lingering. The wine is balanced in a large-scale way, with a tight finish. Be patient...92" WS 05/12
