TASTING NOTES

The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Chaumes has a fragrant bouquet with hints of salted licorice filtering through the rather broody dark cherry and raspberry fruit. This needed some coaxing from the glass and felt a little introspective. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin on the entry, moderate depth, plenty of fresh red berry fruit, but I would be seeking a little more mineralité and terroir expression on the finish. Otherwise this should drink well for 10-12 years.

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

The link with Henri Jayer continues to define, if not overshadow, this estate, which makes outstanding wines completely in its own right. Jean-Nicolas Méo took control in 1989, and the wines have rightfully developed a reputation for being polished, opulent and voluptuous, with wonderful intensity to the fruit. With fourteen hectares in some of the most prestigious parts of the Côte de Nuits, Méo-Camuzet also has a thriving negotiant business.
