Domaine Méo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Chaumes" 2009

DKK 2395

The 2009 is a very ripe vintage: around 13.5% ABV, aromas of sweet red fruit, fairly low acidity and great fullness on the palate. As with all great vintages, the terroir will need a little time to reveal itself. Today, some wines are showing a tendency to close up: they are becoming tighter, less direct, not so easy-drinking. A favourable evolution, especially for the premiers and grands crus, which seem to be bound for glory…

Rating: 90 pts by Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

“The 2009 Vosne-Romanee Les Chaumes shows lovely intensity in its dark fruit, licorice, menthol and sweet spices, all of which come together nicely in the glass. The Chaumes captures the essence of the vintage, especially in its open, textured finish. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022. Jean-Nicolas Meo began harvesting on September 12. He did 17-18 days of cuvaison and did one racking before the wines were prepared for bottling. I was not able to taste a handful of wines that were racked just before my visit, including the Cros Parantoux. Meo is among the growers who believe the 2009s will age well on their depth of fruit.” – Antonio Galloni,  The Wine Advocate, May 2011

Beskrivelse

Domaine Méo-Camuzet Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru “Les Chaumes” 2009

There is much finesse and elegance in this wine, very typical of the Vosne-Romanée appellation. Fullness and charm coexist here, in a wine which is not as awe-inspiring as the superb crus, “les Brûlées” and “Cros Parantoux”, but which is easy to drink and will quickly seduce you.

The good vintages age well, but this wine has a distinct advantage in its youth: indeed, its finesse makes it ideal for early tasting.

Maturing

In casks, its development depends on the vintage; but generally speaking, it remains a wine that can be assessed fairly early, and which rapidly gives you an idea of the general character of a year.

There’s no need to worry about finesse, and in this case, the vinification requires a little more extraction in order to push the wine to its limits. The cap will be broken up more often and the vatting temperatures will be a little higher.

Vines

The years of the plantings are fairly different: the late 50’s for one part and during the 70’s for the other. The older part is almost the more productive and gives fairly large cylindrical grapes. The sugar-acid balance is excellent. The younger part gives smaller grapes, sometimes even small grapes, but riper with less structure.

Situation

At the foot of “la Tâche” and “les Malconsorts”, in a slightly deeper clay soil, we have the good fortune to possess two plots of a total surface area of about 4 acres. With its classic eastward orientation and good supply of water, it is a fairly “solar” vineyard which cannot be considered as a late ripener.
