Tasting Notes

Here too there is just enough reduction to push the underlying fruit to the background though the natural Vosne spiciness peeks through the funk. There is a super fine mouth feel to the delicious, complex and silky medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a harmonious and persistent finish that really fans out as it sits on the palate. This too should be enjoyable young. Drink: 2020+
Note: from a .47 ha parcel

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (57), January 2015

In 2013, the Chaumes was raised in forty percent new wood by Monsieur Cheurlin, as opposed to the all one wine barrels he used for the 2012. The wine is a beautifully balanced and very soil-driven young example of Chaumes, wafting from the glass in a complex nose of red and black cherries, dark soil tones, gamebirds, espresso, woodsmoke and a nice touch of spicy new wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very transparent in personality, with lovely mid-palate depth, fine focus and grip and a long, ripely tannic and beautifully balanced finish. This is a lovely example of Chaumes, with its cooler vintage profile really maximizing the expression of minerality in the wine out of the blocks. 2021-2050.
