Description
  • Vosne-Romanée, famous over the world for its Grand Crus, also produces some Premiers Crus of an outstanding quality. "Les Chaumes" is located underneath the plot of "Aux Malconsorts" on the same altitude as the village of Vosne-Romanée and North of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The iron-based soil is ideal for growing Pinot Noir. The grapes reach their maximum maturity and offers wonderfully aromatic wines. The term "Chaumes" has the same origin as "Charmes", it indicates that it was unplanted land before becoming a vineyard.

    • Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Chaumes" 2010 - Tom Cannavan's wine-pages.com - August 2015 - 93/100

      Fantastic concentration immediately with tight black fruits, a charming hint of cherry and floral character, but also slick and vanilla-touched, just hints of truffle and game well into the background. Structured and full on the palate, there's a glossy sheerness of fruit but a plum flesh depth, almost balsamic and liquoricy, but the tight core of tannins and juicy acids helping to propel the finish. Concentrated, ripe and structured Burgundy, with time ahead of it. (UK)

    • Vosne Romanée 1er Cru "Les Chaumes" 2010 - Decanter - December 2012 - 91/100Voluptuous, oaky nose. Seductive and perfumed cherries. Fine-grained tannins, concentrated, with ample spice and vigour. Powerful and muscular, with high alcohol but fruit balances it. Good length. Drink 2013-2038. By Stephen Brook (UK).
    • Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Chaumes” 2006 - Burghound.com - April 2008 - 89/100A subtly spicy nose of mostly red berry fruits trimmed with discreet notes of soy and hoisin open up to nicely rich and round middle weight flavors that possess a relatively accessible mid-palate yet tighten up quickly on the firm and dusty finish. This should be good for up to 5 to 7 years of improvement. 2012+. By Allen Meadows (USA).
    • Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Chaumes" 2005 - Jancis Robinson - January 2007 - 16/20Very dark, blackish cirmson. Again a slightly raw note on the nose. Very dry and dried cherry flavours. Not Opulent! a Bit though at the moment. Will it ever lose this supercharge of tannins?
    • Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Chaumes" 2005 - Burghound.com - April 2007 - 87/100A fresh, spicy and ripe nose features airy yet earthy black and blue pinot fruit and a hint of violet that deftly blends into rich, velvety and sweet flavors. I would be inclined to drink it early for its fruit. 2011+
