There is much finesse and elegance in this wine, very typical of the Vosne-Romanée appellation. Fullness and charm coexist here, which is easy to drink and will quickly seduce you. 

We have visited this illustrious estate and tasted wine with Jean-Nicolas Méo. He is extremely serious and detail-oriented with an underlying passion for the vines and the wines which he ultimately produces. Today Domaine Méo-Camuzet bottles four astounding grands crus (Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot, Corton Clos Rognet, and Échezeaux, with two more Cortons soon on the way), ten premier crus (from the communes of Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-St-Georges, Chambolle-Musigny, and Fixin), several village wines including this Vosne-Romanee, one Bourgogne Rouge, and only one white. Jean-Nicolas aims for balance and purity of fruit, which he accomplishes with terrific success. Though delicate and fine, even in their youth, the paradoxical concentration and intensity of these wines make them ideal for long aging.

The Vosne Les Chaumes from Méo opens a bit slowly, but eventually it shows a lovely, expressive blackberry fruit with mineral and floral notes. The texture is substantial—firm and tannic with fresh acidity and a lengthy finish. The grapes come from two parcels that total just over two hectares, located just below Malconsorts. The vines are very mature and produce small clusters of concentrated, tannic fruit that Méo is not afraid to punch down and age with 50% new casks in order to deliver this muscular, dense wine. (Drink between 2027-2045)"

The profile of the fresh and cool aromas immediately signals that this could be from nowhere else but Vosne with its hints of star anise, sandalwood, soy and red cherry scents. The texture of the medium weight flavors is gorgeous, mostly thanks to the admirably fine-grained tannins that also shape the balanced, complex and sneaky long finish. This is lovely and a wine that should be approachable after only 5-ish years. 91-93

The 2021 Vosne-Romanee Les Chaumes 1er Cru needed a little encouragement in the glass, a mixture of red and blue fruit with hints of pressed violet. The palate is medium-bodied with powdery tannins that frame the crisp blueberry and raspberry fruit, though the finish feels tight and broody at the moment, run out the exit door with haste. Give it 3-4 years in bottle.

Offering up aromas of plums, rose petals, orange zest and spices, the 2021 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Chaumes is medium to full-bodied, bright and charming, its pretty core of fruit framed by powdery tannins and lively acids. This is a perfumed, immediate Chaumes in the making.
