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+

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.
